SteamRanger is immensely proud and grateful today to receive confirmation of $8.9m in funding from the Government of South Australia to aid in the repair of infrastructure, namely bridges along our railway.
SteamRanger is operated by a majority volunteer workforce, with all revenue from our services going directly into the maintenance of our rollingstock and track.
A number of significant bridges along the railway, some dating back to the late 19th century have become a major challenge for us, and we are glad and very grateful to receive this support from the government.
Our railway provided 70,000 passenger journeys last year. Our mission remains at the forefront of our minds, that is preserving the history of railways in South Australia and delivering an exciting experience to our passengers as they traverse the amazing countryside of our track, from the southern tip of the Mount Lofty Ranges, to the beautiful coast of the Fleurieu Peninsula.
