Looking down from the overpass

The Sydney Live Steam Locomotive Society was formed in 1948 on its present site. They open on the third Saturday afternoon of each month from 1.30pm to around 4.30pm.

West Ryde Mini Trains

They have three miniature railways and offer rides on trains hauled by miniature steam locomotives. The park grounds are a popular location for children’s birthday parties or small group afternoon gatherings. For the enthusiast, it is a good spot to just lie back and watch those steam trains work hard pulling heavily loaded passenger trains.

West Ryde Mini Trains

  • They have a kiosk which sells drinks, ice cream, cakes, chips, etc.
  • Entry is $4 for adults and $2 for children. Rides are $2 each for all ages UPDATED: August 2018.
  • PLEASE NOTE: You must wear enclosed shoes in order to ride the trains.
