OLD TRAIN STATION, EMERALD

Puffing Billy is Australia's Premiere Preserved Steam Railway.This century-old steam train is still running on its original mountain track from Belgrave to Gembrook in the scenic Dandenong Ranges and is a genuine relic of more leisurely days. The Railway is the major survivor of four experimental lines used to develop rural areas in the early 1900s. Puffing Billy is now a major tourist attraction, its operation depending on hundreds of dedicated volunteers. Along its track are some old stations, this being an example.
