We are very proud that the new Tasmanian Living magazine has chosen to feature the West Coast Wilderness Railway on the front cover of its inaugural edition. There's also a terrific article on the Railway inside. Thanks for joining us for a ride on our heritage railway, Tasmanian Living

There were five steam locomotives on the original Mount Lyell Railway, plus some diesel locos which we still use. Of the five steam locos, we have three in service on the West Coast Wilderness Railway and one can be seen being well cared for in Hobart at the Tasmanian Transport Museum. in Glenorchy.

As for the fate of the last of our little Abt locos - well, you will have to join us for a ride to hear that story.... Thanks to our friends at the Tasmanian Transport Museum for sharing this pic and for tagging #wcwrtas. Do go and visit them when you're in Hobart.

The West Coast Wilderness Railway works with the community to maintain this West Coast tradition. First reinstated in 2005, the annual event now coincides with Australia Day and involves community members boarding the train in Queenstown for the journey to Strahan where a large picnic is held.
