Redwater Creek Steam and Heritage Society in Sheffield operates steam train rides on the first full weekend of every month. You can experience rail travel from yesteryear from the original restored Sheffield railway station. A restored Krauss steam loco pulling rebuilt heritage carriages runs every half hour from 1100 until 1600 on Saturday and Sunday.
The Sheffield Station now has an accredited kitchen and an updated coffee shop which a Tasmanian Barrel wood heater keeps nice and cosy. You can order home baked goodies while you wait for the next train, or have light tasty meals ready for you when you return from your 20 minute train trip.
Steam power looks even more impressive in cold, damp weather – don’t put it off!
1906 Krauss 60 centimetre gauge loco and Tasmanian heritage coaches – now in its hundredth year and still going strong! A community project run entirely by volunteers.
