Wascoe Siding

Facilities

The Wascoe Siding railway operates in a private park at Blaxland, owned by the Blue Mountains Railway Society.

The park is a very safe environment for children, and disabled access to the park is readily available.

Wascoe Siding has a kiosk that sells hot and cold food, drinks and snacks (currently closed due to COVID issues). There are a number of tables in the grassed areas, or you can bring your own. Grassed areas operate on a first-in basis. There are a number of undercover tables which are subject to bookings and a charge of $30/table for the day. These are popular with childrens birthday parties. See our Facebook site for the latest details and booking information.

Passengers board the train at the station and do three laps of the park, including two laps through the tunnel, before returning to the station. Passengers may then rejoin the queue for another ride.

Tickets for train rides are available from the ticket office on the day. Ticket options may change at short notice due to COVID restrictions.

There is both an inner and an outer track, 21 sets of points, fully operational colour light signals, a large marshalling yard and an operational turntable.

Members operate their own locomotives, all fully certified for public passenger operation. Some are real steam engines, some operate by petrol motors and some are electric.

There are eighteen carriages all owned by the Society, and all are in use on running days. Double heading sometimes occurs.

Note that during COVID restrictions, visitor numbers are limited. We may refuse entry if the park reaches capacity during the day.

Whilst on site, visitors must abide by any COVID restrictions in place and maintain social distancing as much as possible.
