STEAM ENGINE 3620 AT THE NORTH CAIRNS YARDS

Here’s an opportunity for train lovers to get involved with the restoration of steam engine 3620 – which used to pull the elegant silver carriages of the Cairns Kuranda Steam Railway. It’s a few years since its seen service and has been sitting in the railway yards off Sheridan Street north Cairns, going through an extensive restoration. That’s nearing completion, and the friendly team who volunteer their time and talents on this project have room for some new friends. They’ve set up the Cairns Local Loop club – which you can join here

There’s an assortment of diesel and steam at the north Cairns rail yards, and it’s home to the iconic far north Queensland Savannahlander – that does the run out to Forsayth.

Come an audio tour of the rail yards and meet Rob Rutten and Mike Lee

    I only recently did the Kuranda Rail for teh first time in my two years of living here – I absolutely adored it, best thing happening up here! Very much looking forward to seeing the steam locomotive restored!
