Great Train Race
Sunday 3 May, 2015
ENTRIES ARE CLOSED
This year Puffing Billy's 34th Great Train Race will take place on Sunday 3 May, 2015. The race begins in Belgrave at 9.30am.
The Great Train Race isn't simply a race amongst the competitors - it's an exciting challenge competing against the steam locomotive, Puffing Billy!
The race route extends 13.5 km's through the hills and fern gullies of the picturesque Dandenong Ranges from Belgrave to Emerald Lake Park. The continual popularity of this unique run makes the Great Train Race an event not to be missed.
The Great Train Race is organised by Puffing Billy Railway volunteers. All proceeds and any additional donations go towards the restoration of the NGG16 129 Garratt locomotive.
