Pichi Richi RailwayBack to Quorn
Experience the timeless Flinders Ranges in style aboard the Pichi Richi Railway. This historic railway line has been progressively restored and operated as a working museum for the past 40 years by the dedicated volunteers of the Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society. Operating between Quorn and Port Augusta, this is the last remaining operating portion of the "Old Ghan" railway line. Trains use steam locomotives or historic diesels, and genuine timber-body carriages up to 115 years old. Full or half-day trips are available or hire a private train. The Afghan Express: A steam-hauled train using timber-bodied carriages built in the late 1920s. Port Augusta to Quorn (return), six hours including a two hour stop for lunch in historic Quorn. The Pichi Richi Explorer: A steam train using South Australian railways carriages, some dating from the nineteenth century. Quorn to Woolshed Flat, return two hours. The Barwell Bull: 85 year old heritage diesel railcar travelling the Pichi Richi Explorer route. Twilight Explorer: During March and November, relax with a drink aboard the Barwell Bull and watch the evening sun paint the ranges the colours of sunset.
