The Rylstone Rocket

Travel in style behind a classic streamlined diesel locomotive from Sydney to the charming colonial town of Rylstone.

Ride in our stunning air-conditioned Club Lounge Cars with exclusive access to our ex-Indian Pacific Dining Car with included breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner.

Other options include comfortable seating in our air-conditioned sitting cars. For groups, we have a strictly limited number of private compartments with opening-windows. Breakfast and other snacks can be purchased from our buffet car, while alcohol can be purchased from points throughout the train.

Sit back and enjoy the climb over the Blue Mountains and the stunning picture views of the world-renowned Capertee Valley with a glass of wine in the hand as we traverse the old Mudgee branch line. You will have the choice of destinations — Kandos or Rylstone.

You’ll have plenty of time for a relaxing lunch at a variety of cafés and pubs at either destination and time to stroll around the historic towns before reboarding.

On the return journey, The Rylstone Rocket will whisk you home through the golden afternoon sun and into the night.
