Have you ever wondered what it takes to light up, prepare and maintain a steam locomotive?

Behind the scenes at Pichi Richi Railway's Quorn workshops, you can visit a hidden world of historic railway treasures in various stages of restoration.

Tour our locomotive and carriage maintenance facilities, view restorations in progress, and see our historic rollingstock collection not normally seen on our trains.

Workshop tours are available by PRIOR ARRANGEMENT only at the Quorn Railway Station or the Flinders Ranges Visitor Information Centre at Quorn.  Tour duration is between 1 and 1.5 hours.  Availability of tours depends on a Volunteer Guide being available so please enquire in advance.

Closed-in footwear must be worn on workshop tours for safety reasons.

Bookings: Flinders Ranges Visitor Information Centre, Quorn Railway Station. Telephone 1800 PRRAIL (1800 777 245) or E-mail This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
