Took the 707 vintage train to the Taste Of The Goulburn festival at Seymour. Very comfortable trip up in a vintage carriage and returned in the saloon carriage enjoying a couple of reds. A very relaxing day.

Some confusion in ticketing process whether seats were allocated or first in; at platform in morning at Southern Cross there seemed to be confusion with 707 personnel on seating arrangements. Otherwise very smooth trip with on train staff very helpful and friendly.More

The trip was very well organised and the staff were excellent. Accomodation was neat and very clean. Thought the food was a bit average and maybe this could be given some more attention. Overall a very enjoyable experience and am looking forward to next year.More
