Puffing Billy Steam Train Film and Photos

Puffing Billy is the name of a narrow gauge steam train service based in Victoria, Melbourne. The restored steam engines, carriages, tracks, and station are beautifully maintained.

We recently visited Puffing Billy when Megan’s parents came to visit for the weekend. We caught the metropolitan train from Southern Cross to Belgrave. A short walk from the station is Puffing Billy’s dedicated station. We opted for one of the shorter trips, Belgrave to Emerald. The journey on Puffing Billy lasted one hour with a few stops along the way.

During the journey I took some footage and photos. A short film and a selection of photos appear below.
