Great Train Race 2018 is sold out!
Description

A highlight of the Hunter Valley Steamfest program, the Great Train Race features steam engines running parallel together whilst racing a Tiger Moth aeroplane.

Your journey will start in Maitland for the relaxed trip into Broadmeadow before you race against the Tiger Moth back to Maitland.

Who will be crowned the winner in 2018?

Great Train Race is a steam push/pull journey.

As you depart Maitland heading east, the steam locomotive will push from the rear, assisted by a Diesel heritage engine at the front.

As you enter into Broadmeadow you will enter a loop which will allow the Steam to then pull from the front as you race towards Maitland.

Due to the Heritage Nature of the locomotives, prams and wheelchairs are unable to be take on the train. A wheelchair and pram enclosure will be situated next to the ticketing tent and patrons able to utilise this for free over the weekend.
