What Our Friends Say
The Darling Downs has a long and proud railway heritage. Now, thanks to the tireless work of the DownsSteam volunteers that heritage is being honoured.
What I find so exciting with DownsSteam is there is so much potential for Great Journeys of the world coming from Toowoomba.
A truly great day out to check out the history of rail in Toowoomba region. The highlight was the aboriginal carriage with absolutely terrific paintings through the carriage. Well worth paying a visit.
We had a magic morning. The morning tea was magnificent and the tour was so informative. What a great job they are doing there – all volunteers and NO Government assistance – it is a great tourist attraction.
A fabulous venue for small events – birthdays, Mothers Day and Fathers Day, Christmas and anniversaries. Train lovers will thoroughly enjoy the museum carriage! And don’t miss the incredible Dreamtime carriage – a 3D artwork that needs to be seen to be believed.
Thank you so much for allowing us to use your railway station and rolling stock for our wedding photo shoot. We had such an amazing day and appreciate the volunteers time and efforts. Special thanks to Peter.
