Created By: Mornington Railway Preservation Socicety Inc.


The train rolls out of the station yard and travels up a small incline through a timbered area. The adjacent Mout Eliza Regional Park has contributed to an abundance of wildlife, keep a watchful eye open.

On the left hand side, just over the brow of the hill, the Emil Madsen reserve with sporting grounds can be seen. It has a superb view of the trains trundling by.

The Balcombe Creek flows behind the trees on our right resulting in a marshed area of land. The railway was originally supported on a trestle bridge until it was covered to form the current embankement.

After 10 years of neglect, trees had grown through and over the line, sleepers had rotted and the drainage systems were blocked. In 1991 MRPS started work on the restoration of the Mornington railway line.
