The ancient Puffing Billy Railway started in the early 20th century and is now a famous tourist train, becoming one of the more popular tourist activities in Melbourne. The small train has witnessed historical changes in Melbourne for the past hundred years. The small train, with a speed of only 20 kilometers per hour, takes you back to the not so distant past. The open wooden carriage allows you to intimately connect with nature and breathe in the purity of forest air. Shortly after the train leaves the Belgrave station, passengers will see the most famous landmark of the Puffing Billy railway line, the Monbec Creek Trestle. In addition, there are many stations along the way where passengers may exit the train.
The starting point of the train was BELGRAVE STATION, which was stopped by the police because I was in a hurry and overtook frequently. A lesson has been learned. I missed Belgrave's last train. So, in absence of the wooden bridge you see in the photo, I drove to the next stop Menzies Creek and bought a return ticket to lakeside. The small platform is very clean and beautiful in the sun. The ticket seller is an old man. He told me that the ticket machine has been used for 100 years, so the tickets are very valuable for collection. Small trains can sit quietly in the carriage, or they can pull their legs out of the window. The trains were beautiful all the way, with idyllic scenery, waving to local residents and tourists on the roadside. After the lakeside got off, it was an Emerald Lake Park, not big, but very beautiful, a little shake to take the return train.
Melbourne special experience ~Free travel, buy a ticket online in advance to determine the time of the train, just on time. I still seem to have bought something expensive and lost it. Belgrave-Landside commutes & # 165; 224 people, you can find a similar one. Take a look at the official website https://puffingbilly.com.au/buy-tickets/start-belgrave/can also be reserved by oneself, for 59 knives per person. Make a reservation and buy on the spot is likely to run out. It's very convenient to go to Belgrave. We can follow Google Map by subway (Train) with our Myki card and follow the instructions for 5-10 minutes to find it. Myki card seems to have been used once in three days. The cost is 6 yuan. When I bought it, I repeatedly confirmed it with my uncle at the ticket office. So I bought just 11 yuan each. But it should be noted that it's a long way to Belgrave, like it takes half an hour to come to work at noon, and I came to the car because I was too anxious to know the situation, so I waited for another half an hour alive. It's really the last train to catch up with the train at 14:30. Thank you, Grandpa Puffingbilly, for all kinds of white beard! __________ The train has seats, facing the grove or the other side of the grove. Sunshine, smoke, and roaring sounds echo in the forest, the dream of the train [color]! About half an hour to Menzies Creek for a break, the next stop is Landside. After L, there will be an Emerald Land Park. Take a half-hour break. Aqua Bike Hire is a 15-knife experience for 15 minutes. No one plays. Walk around, take pictures, go to the toilet, 16:15 to depart for the return journey, Grandpa will patrol to remind whether there is still no boarding. The whole journey is 2.5-3 hours. It can't say what the scenery is like, but it's an interesting experience. After all, we can't get on the small train with purple sauce this year. It's a pity that I can't swing my hands and feet out now. Happy as a child! It is recommended to take the elderly and children and walk freely [grow grass]~
It is Australia's oldest steam train and one of the best preserved steam train railways in the world. Sitting in a small train shuttle in the Dandi Red Mountains, the mood at the moment can only be realized by being there. Melbourne can go directly by subway for about an hour. If you have a chance, you must try it. There will be a sense of fantasy about traversing.
At 11:10, I got on the old Puffinberry Steam Train in Melbourne. It started from Belgrade and arrived at Jane Brook. It was 40 kilometers and an hour's drive. Along the way, it was a mountain forest ranch. Jane Brooke stayed for more than an hour. After the meal, she played rugby with Australian children, chasing, hugging, kicking, passing and catching the ball. There was a lot of laughter and laughter. The children's world should not be troubled! _________
The Puffinberry train is about half an hour away from Melbourne's downtown area. There are special trains from the downtown area to BEVERAGE station. You can see the ticket office and entrance of the train after 3-5 minutes'walk. Small train operators and managers are elderly Australian grandparents, are very warm and friendly, except for team seats, the other seats are free to sit, grandparents dressed in uniforms appear to be energetic, in the gap waiting for driving will actively take pictures with visitors greeting plate. Although it was cloudy in Melbourne and cold in the spring, the whole journey of the train was warm and the scenery was beautiful. People along the route would greet us. Trains are usually taken to and from LAKESIDE Station, which is about an hour apart. There is a small lake and a recreational grassland park at LAKESIDE Station. Many Australian residents will choose to have a picnic here.
The world's relatively complete steam train is about an hour's drive from Melbourne. It's interesting to sit on the window. Generally, it's better to sit on the right side of the bus. The last two carriages are the best places to see the scenery. However, the rear carriages are usually reserved, but free-riding tourists need not worry, the latter two carriages are available for return journey. It's a little cold in the mountains, especially after summer, so when you come here, you must remember to bring a coat. Sit down for three or four hours. You have to do at least one stop at Lakesaide to make it worthwhile. There are curtains rolled up on the windows. If it rains occasionally on the way, you can put down the curtains to keep out the rain. Along the way, you can see the passionate waving of passers-by residents on both sides. It's really worth a visit.
This is a forest steam train with rich history. It spans the nostalgia of the century. A group of Australian volunteers organize a special trip. They can stretch their hands out of the train and enjoy a green forest trip. It's really wonderful.
Narrow-gauge railway lines built by the government to develop remote areas (see chart below) have become one of the best-preserved steam train lines in the world today thanks to the tireless efforts of volunteers. The railway is 29 kilometers long. It travels through wooden trestles tens of meters high and shuttles through picturesque mountains and forests. After more than an hour's drive, it can reach the Jade Lake. I am impressed by the warm smile of the crew, which is an expression of pride and self-confidence that can be emitted from the heart no matter what work they do. Pro, professional enough!
On an interesting trip, the train was panting among the mountains and forests, stretching its feet out of the carriage, meeting passers-by greeting each other, sometimes greening the Buddha, sometimes meeting the villa cottage, feeling back to childhood. Unfortunately, due to the time constraints, we only sat one stop. It is said that the scenery behind is more beautiful. Just for this train, we decided to go again and have a meal on the train from head to tail. Friends in Melbourne must not miss this journey back to the ancients.
This should be one of the best-preserved steam trains in the world. The scenery is great when the weather is clear. You can also sit on the iron railings of the windows and stretch your feet out. The breeze is blowing and you can experience unprecedented comfort.
