The Historic Cockle Train Returns to the Rails for the June Long Weekend between Victor Harbor and Goolwa.
The historic Cockle Train will return to the rails for the June 2020 long weekend, following the relaxation of Stage 2 Covid-19 Restrictions. Three diesel-hauled trains will operate daily between Goolwa and Victor Harbor from Saturday 6 June to Monday 8 June 2020 inclusive only.
As a result of capacity restrictions on indoor seated attractions, the Cockle Train will have a maximum of 80 passengers on each journey, with tickets only available from Goolwa or Victor Harbor ticket offices prior to departure (no advance or online bookings available). Due to these limitations, trains will not service Port Elliot or Middleton until further notice.
SteamRanger has increased its cleaning processes and has undertaken Covid-clean accreditation, as well as a COVID-SAFE plan to ensure a safe experience for their passengers and staff.
Due to infrastructure works being undertaken by City of Victor Harbor Council at Coral Street, services will then cease following the long weekend until Sunday 21 June 2020, when train services will resume on Sundays only until the July school holidays.
SteamRanger would like to remind motorists and pedestrians to exercise caution when crossing the railway between Mt Barker and Victor Harbor, as trains can operate at any time of the day or night.
Tickets are available on the day at the Goolwa or Victor Harbor ticket offices (no advance or online bookings available)
For more information and all enquiries please visit the Steamranger website or follow them on Facebook.
