Key viewing points include the historic Muckleford Station (approximately halfway along the route), the Old Castlemaine Gaol (start location with spectacular views across Castlemaine and the Train Station) and Maldon Train Station where the race and ride finish.

The best vantage point however is undoubtedly from the steam train itself where you’ll have a front row seat to watch the riders tackle the course and try and keep up with the train.

The 11:45am Castlemaine to Maldon train is the 'Race' train. Buy a ticket for this service if you want to watch the action unfold from the comfort of the carriages!
