While most visitors that come to Belgrave are here for the "Puffin Billy" train ride . Belgrave is a small town with a proud heritage.. Being a train person this was high on my agenda this time visiting Melbourne.
A day out with a mate it was decided on that we would get the train...and for me that was a great decision..
The ticket office was quite crowded as I found this to be an exceptionally popular thing to do for locals and visitors alike..There are many trains here that are serviced and nurtured by the volunteers that run the railway...This surely is a unique little railway and is so good to see it being looked after so well. There certainly is a crowd that gathers on the platforms for the various trains. The train journey itseldf is one that travels through some of Victorias marvellous Dandenong Ranges with large forrests of tall mountain ash ..Along the way the train traverses some wooden trestle bridges that make great photo opportunites ..arriving at its destination in the small town of .There is lots to do here while waiting for your return journey to Belgrave..
