Join us on board the Historic Cockle Train this summer holidays!

Steam* hauled trains will operate between Thursday 27th December 2018 and Monday 28th January 2019.

Between Thursday 27th December and Tuesday 1st January, locomotives Rx207 (fresh from winter boiler overhaul works) and 621 will work 6 trains per day between Goolwa and Victor Harbor. Time your trip to travel behind one loco on the way up, and the other on the way back!

Rx207 and 621 will then work week-on, week-off until the end of the school holidays.

No need to pre-book, tickets at Goolwa, Port Elliot and Victor Harbor Stations on the day of travel.

*Trains will be diesel hauled if total firebans are enforced over the Mt Lofty Ranges fire district. SteamRanger reserves the right to substitute motive power in the event of mechanical or crewing difficulties.
