The 2 hour excursion Steam-Rangers operate Sundays plus selected Wednesdays & Saturdays including Wednesdays of   WA School Holidays (see table below)


Upon departing Dwellingup the pace is leisurely as the train rolls along westward, down to Isandra Siding, 14kms away.  Once there, the locomotive will move to the opposite end of the train during the 30 minute stopover and make ready for the return.


On the return journey, you will thrill to the magnificent sights and sounds of a Steam Locomotive hard at work climbing Western Australia's steepest and most spectacular section of railway, through the Darling Range Escarpment as the train returns you to Dwellingup.

Travel along an amazing portion of steeply graded and tightly curved railway manually carved into the Darling Range, which once so masterfully served the timber industry and the agricultural areas of Dwellingup and beyond.
