Here is a rare opportunity to travel right around the Central West by rail on existing lines starting in Gulgong and finishing in Rylstone. The ‘missing link’, the section of the old Mudgee line still closed, back to Gulgong via Mudgee, we will do by coach, thus completing the full loop of the Central West. It’s a journey full of scenery and variety including a restaurant dinner, quality motel accommodation, a pub lunch, historic village visits and of course the ride in your 1920’s vintage heritage rail motor. Explore your own backyard on our special Central West Loop by private Heritage Train.
