SPIRIT OF PROGRESS - 80th Anniverary Tour 2017


We celebrate 80 years of the Spirit running 2 of the 3 original destinations during testing, Geelong and Ballarat.

The train will consist of original 1937 first and second class sitting carriages, the original dining Carriage, parcel van and the parlour carriage, a saloon type carriage at the rear of the train.


The famous S class steam locomotive leading the 1937 consist was sadly scrapped in the 1950’s, but we plan to have leading our train vintage diesel locomotives which regularly ran the Spirit following the retirement of steam. The 64-year-old B74, and/or 60-year-old S303 in the magnificent blue and gold will lead your anniversary train. Please note that locomotives may change.*


There will be a special dining experience in the Dining Carriage, Breakfast, Morning Tea and a 2 course dinner is available for purchase.

A kiosk with a selection of food and drinks will also be available.
