It was absolutely pouring down when we arrived. But would not have missed this trip. The station is kept to the era of the steam locos. The authenticity was spot on, even the conductors looked and were dressed as if they had walked out of...More

It takes you back to the time steam trains were around, Staff that work there are very passionate about what they do and the achievements they have done. They are a wonderful group of Volunteers. Please keep it up

Sorry to say there is no public transport out to Glenbrook. The best way to do it is to high a car, there are higher places on the stand not far from Mission bay. I hope this helps.
