STEAMRAIL’S annual Snow Train tourist service was swamped by railway enthusiasts and interested onlookers when it stopped at Warragul Station this morning.

The double-headed train, powered by Steamrail’s R761 and 707 Operations’ R707 locomotives, was surrounded by a large number of people who ventured onto the tracks to get a closer look when it arrived shortly after 10.30.
A number of passengers who travelled from Melbourne disembarked at Warragul to take part in a local winery tour.
The crowd quickly dispersed when the train crew sounded the whistle, allowing the train to continue to Traralgon uninterrupted.
A Steamrail spokesperson said the train will return to Melbourne from Traralgon at 4.40pm, stopping at Moe at 5.15pm and reaching Warragul at 5.50pm assuming no delays.
Longwarry can expect to see the train again at 6.09pm.
