While in the area for a few days we came to Daylesford for the market and the train ride that go well hand in hand. The volunteers do a great job to keep this train ride going , it was only a short ride to Musk through some bush and open farmland, ten minutes to stretch the legs at Musk, nothing there only a sign and tin shelter shed then back to Daylesford to the market for lunch , lovely little jaunt on a ole historic train . It was good to see once we got off the train the volunteers were giving the carriages a good Covid clean, still important to follow the regulations that now have this state nearly Covid free

Due to the disastrous failures of Daniel Andrews and his inept Victorian Labor government, this volunteer-run tourist railway was still not operating on Sundays when we called in midweek for a look. My friend loved the restored station plus the excellent condition of many goods vehicles - former sheep and cattle vans, workmens' huts ('bug huts' being what they were called, but now at least one has airconditioning on rails!), oil tankers and louvre vans to name a few. However the stupidity of placing temporary tape on platform seats with these being out of bounds was evident. Not only did this detract from the appearance, but there's never been anyone claim in the media that people got the virus from sitting for three minutes next to a stranger. Let's get on with life and not take these silly, unjustified medically and socially, bureaucratic atmosphere-destroying steps.

Dropped us off in Bullarto, told we had 15 minutes to stretch our legs, the train left after 10 minutes leaving 11 passengers stranded for an hour and a half on a 35 degree day. I get that it’s volunteer run, but in pretty terrible experience that ended in a grumbling insincere apology.

In some ways this railway is a living museum of the 1930s to 1950s. Everything has been restored to how things were and the rail cars take you on short journeys into the Wombat Forest. Couple this with the Sunday Market at the railway station, lunch in town, and you have a great day out.

Had a ride to Bullarto and return on a Walker railmotor. The Daylesford Station has been immaculately restored and maintained, and the railmotor looks brand new - a testament to the dedicated volunteers whi have restored it. The staff were friendly and knowledgable, a real delight to travel with the DSCR.
