The railway track is a dual gauge line consisting 7¼ & 5 inch gauges. It is the largest dual gauge track in New South Wales, and the second largest in Australia. A round trip on our mini rail is around 25 minutes at a cost of $4 per person. All of our drivers are trained, qualified and licensed. Each driver is equipped with a two way radio and trains are operated under a modified Safeworking System known as “Train Order Working”.
The Casino township is known as the “Beef Capital of Australia” and the mini rail is ranked as one of the towns major attractions.
The Casino Mini Rail & Museum is a non-profit organization for family enjoyment, local rail history and education. All members of the minirail and museum are volunteers where all proceeds raised are generated back into the mini rail & museum for maintenance, equipment, cleaning, improvements, safety, and maintenance of track/rolling stock and surroundings,for the continuation of this humble organization of the community.
The aim of the Society is to provide:
• a major tourist attraction to the township and area of Casino
• preserve rail history
• provide a safe and enjoyable miniature train ride
• education into rail and safety
