Where are we going today?
Toot Toot! Who's ready to climb aboard!?
Central Coast Steam Model Co-Op Ltd is a fun experience for those kids who are just train crazy!
There are several loops of track, but the standard journey is about 1km (that's pretty huge for a toy train!). There are a number of different trains to really captivate the imagination of kids. Vintage steam trains, or battery powered electric motors - do you know how they all work?
Some of the trains even have small internal combustion engines.
The trains don't operate all of the time, so it's worth noting the limited opening days of the frist Saturday of every month.
The Co-op is mainly a volunteer organisation, so you will be sure that the staff who work there are super friendly, and most importantly super passionate about trains. They will try and answer any questions, and be sure to give kids the best train experience possible!
Parents, you won't be left out - you can ride these trains too! And when we say trains, we mean adorable working mini trains. You get to sit over the top of them - literally sitting on the roof!
Enjoy the view as you make your way around the tracks. It's a lot of fun!
How much does it cost?
- Adults$2.50 per ride
- Children$2.50 per ride
- Free Under: Toddlers in arms
When can we go?
11:00am - 4:00pm.
First Saturday of the month
You are welcome to bring a picnic lunch! If you have a bit more of an appetite, the local Lions Club has a sausage sizzle next to the ticket country! .
Any Top Tips?
If you plan to ride the train, you must make sure you have enclosed footwear. We want to protect those feet of yours!.
Don't forget your water, sunscreen, hat and camera! It's also worth noting that the steam trains won't run on a total fire ban..

5" gauge (one twelfth full size) and 7 1/4" gauge (one eighth full size) small trains are open on the first Saturday of every month. No charge for admission but it costs $2.50 to ride. Covered footwear is essential. It is wise not to wear clothes that might be damaged by smoke and sparks from the real steam locomotives that run here.
The guys usually also meet on other Saturdays and Thursdays to maintain the grounds and test their trains.
Owners of miniature engines are welcome to visit, on the understanding that all AALS safety rules apply.
