As our return draws closer we have to make some very important changes to how we are to welcome public back to the travel aboard our heritage carriages. One of the most significant of these to comply with Government guidelines greatly assisting with social distancing. When booking a ticket you will be sold an entire compartment on board, with a limit to the numbers within your group. Passenger limits will also be placed on each train to not exceed the total indoor capacity limits. We currently await the Government announcement further easing restrictions and thus potentially allowing greater capacities. #covidsafetymeasures #socialdistancing #morningtonpeninsula #familyouting #safe #peninsula #smallgroups #onlinebooking ...
We love seeing people images of their journey with us. Here is a wonderful example of this by Imagesbybarefoot. You can share your images of your experience at any time, by adding individual image to our visitor post tab on this page as well as just tagging #morningtonrailway ...
As we get closer to opening for passengers, we are aware that so many people have Gift Certificates that may have or will soon be out of date. The railway will be more than happy to extend any expired certificates that has occurred during our closure. That being from March until November 2020. . . Send us a DM so we can provide you details how to have yours extended. #giftideas #christmasiscoming #family #adventures #familyoutings #giftcertificates ...
*** IMPORTANT UPDATE - TRAINS RETURN TO THE MORNINGTON RAILWAY*****
We wish to advise the public that we will be recommencing train running from Saturday 14th of November, when we plan to run the first of a series of trains for testing and maintenance purposes. This is to ensure that our infrastructure is safe and ready for restarting passenger train operations shortly under our Covid-safe arrangements.
We are aware that many people have been enjoying walking along the rail corridor during our enforced closure, but its important that this practice now ceases, as we will be returning to operational status and passenger and volunteer safety are paramount. You will shortly see new signage at entrance points to the railway advising that the corridor is now closed to unauthorised public use under Rail Safety National Law.
In the future we would like to be able to share the corridor with the public in a safe and controlled manner, so please consider supporting the team at Mornington Community Safe Link, who are working closely with us and many other stakeholders, including environmental groups, to establish a much-needed shared-usage path along the railway line between Moorooduc Station and Mornington Station so that the public, train operation and our unique natural biodiversity in the corridor can safely co-exist. You can sign the Safelink petition by following the link shown below:

I hope that the shared corridor becomes a reality, and in so doing will maybe, just maybe, help to save from demolition some of the beautiful disused railways under threat elsewhere in Australia. Does need to be an equal balance of funding though across both, not just volunteers for one, and govt money for the other, that's not fair.
No Phil it’s okay for you to walk in it and if you have any loony friends then they can too and the average I Q of the area will increase
Is there any Christmas train rides in Dec this year? Thanks
Hopefully Sat Nov 28th like the Puffing Billy Railway starting date.
So glad u are open again 😘
Which locomotive will be running the service tomorrow?
