Pete’s Hobby Railway, Junee is exactly that — a small 2-ft (610mm) gauge railway owned and operated as a hobby by myself on private property at Junee in southern NSW (Australia).
It is currently under construction, now that approval of the whole concept by the local Council last year.
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, visitors will be welcome to view, and photograph, Pete’s Hobby Railway from the street only at times that may be advertised (such as during Junee’s Rhythm n Rail Festival , which is usually held in March each year). At other times, it is more than likely that the locomotives and rolling stock will not be easily visible, although the rail track and Loftus station can be clearly seen and photographed.
Updates on the progress with the construction of Pete’s Hobby Railway appear in Progress Reports. These are prepared on an irregular basis and are posted to this web-page after they have been first distributed to those direct volunteers and supporters of the project.
Separate headings will lead you into details about my locomotives, rolling stock and track including a plan of the proposed layout, as well as a brief history of my former “Weavering Light Railway” which operated at Loftus, in the Sutherland Shire (south of Sydney, NSW) from 1975 until 2015 when the property was sold.
