Facilities.

The club has a large clubhouse/station named Massey Junction after our late patron Anne Massey, who played a fundamental role in establishing the club at its present site. The club rooms include a kitchen, toilets, showers, library and display area. There is a large covered area incorporating the station platform, and two separate running tracks which meet at Massey Junction.

Track One is the Spiral Hill track which climbs at a gradient of 1 in 60. This track includes gauges of 3 1/2", 5" and 7 1/4". Its length is 850 metres. A 20 metre tunnel is a feature of this track.

The second track, the Prairie Route, runs 1200 metres around Centre Park and is fairly level with a 60 metre low level viaduct. This track is 5" and 7 1/4" gauge.

The railway is open every Sunday with train rides commencing at 11 am, weather permitting.
