With a nice warm spring day forecast again for this coming Thursday, and before school holidays finish, an operational day is planned for Pete’s Hobby Railway.

Both the 102-year old Hunslet steam locomotive and the Ruston diesel locomotive will be used to haul our carriages across now 400m+ length of track in service in Peter’s front yard.

Getting to Pete’s Hobby Railway

Pete’s Hobby Railway is located just on the outskirts of town on a property called “The Roses” in Wardle Street, Junee, NSW, Australia.

The simplest way to find Pete’s Hobby Railway is to follow the signs in town that point to the Junee Roundhouse Museum. Turn off the Olympic Highway onto Harold Street towards the Roundhouse. Wardle Street is the SECOND street on your right (note you’ll pass two laneways as well). And Pete’s Hobby Railway is the second last property on your left – you’ll easily see the railway and station from the street 🙂

You can find The Roses aka Pete’s Hobby Railway on Google Maps.

Limited parking will be available on the verge in front of Peter’s property. Please respect our neighbours and avoid blocking access to their properties.

Not open for public inspection, nor rides!

Unfortunately, owing to the specific requirements of the Rail Safety National Law 2012 (NSW), I am NOT permitted to open Pete’s Hobby Railway for public inspection and/or rides.

However, the public are welcome to view, and photograph, Pete’s Hobby Railway from the street only.
