The volunteers of the Queensland Pioneer Steam Railway are some of the most dedicated train fanatics you will meet. Their depot at Box Flat, a few clicks out of Ipswich, is home to a variety of old wooden carriages, railway memorabilia and of course locomotives.
Their beautifully restored PB15 steam engine is the cream of the crop, and members of the public even have the chance to drive her.
For $499 you can book a driver experience, where you can fulfill your childhood dream of driving a steam train. QPSR hold regular events so check out their website to see what is on next.
