An exciting initiative for Steamfest, green steam gave passengers the opportunity to purchase a green ticket for their trip in an effort to offset the carbon emissions produced by locomotives used during the event.
If 75% of passengers opt for the green steam ticket, all Burton Automotive Hunter Valley Steamfest 2019 locomotive operations will be carbon neutral.
All green steam ticket were an additional $2.00 on the cost of a ticket. The proceeds from the green steam ticket option will go to a local environmental group, to fund a carbon offsetting initiative, and we are looking for a group to donate proceeds to again this year.
