The Track

Track_PlanThe track has developed over the life of the Society and now occupies two basic levels. The higher section of track is in the top half of the adjacent plan while the lower area, represented by the section below the Creek Bridge, is on the Petrie Creek flats some 3 metres below the Station floor level.
The Creek Bridge crosses about 2.5 metres above a small tributary to the main creek. A line of large trees visually separates the two basic levels giving a real sense of a train journey.
With the pedestrian over-bridge leading to the Toilet Block, patrons can look down on the tracks, wave to passengers, and enjoy the smoke and steam particularly when locos are steaming up the long climb from the creek flats.There are many vantage points for viewing and photographing trains and passengers at both long and short range. Large areas of open grass offer plenty of scope for both family and group picnics.
