​Whilst we would love to operate a steam train on every show, it is at the discretion of the Bellarine Railway as to the type of engine that is used at any given time.

Generally a steam locomotive will be used if available, however due to the nature of heritage machinery mechanical issues, restoration and scheduled maintenance will impact on the ability to utilise steam.

On a day of total fire ban, a heritage diesel engine will be in operation.

Please note that should a diesel engine be used, no prior notification will be given and refunds do not apply.
