This century-old steam train is still running on its original mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook in the scenic Dandenong Ranges. Puffing Billy is a genuine relic of more leisurely days. An historic steam train still running regularly in the mountain district it was built to serve at the turn of the century. The Railway is the major survivor of four experimental lines used to develop rural areas in the early 1900s. Puffing Billy is now a major tourist attraction, its operation depending on hundreds of dedicated volunteers.
