PLEASE NOTE: The Mary Ann has now been given permission to begin operating again. We can't wait to welcome you aboard!

The Maryborough City Whistle Stop volunteers maintain and operate the Mary Ann replica steam locomotive, manage our Railway Station Museum and work towards the preservation and restoration of the B15 steam locomotive #299.

We are located in the city of Maryborough, Queensland and aim to preserve our rich, local history of locomotive building and engineering. We also give visitors to our region the unique experience of riding in carriages pulled by the full-sized, working replica of the Mary Ann steam locomotive.

The Mary Ann Steam Train operates on the following days...

  • Thursday (Heritage Market Day in Maryborough) between 9am and 12.30pm.
  • The last Sunday of the month – 9am to 12.30pm.

Thursdays – Children $3.00, Adults $5.00, Family $10.00.
Sundays (longer ride) – Children $4.00, Adults $6.00, Family $15.00.

The Maryborough Railway Museum contains a small, but remarkable, collection of railway memorabilia and is located in the Railway Complex in Lennox Street, opposite St Paul's Anglican Church. The Museum is now open Monday to Thursday 9am - 12.30pm. Entry fee is $2.00 for each person.

Maryborough City Whistle Stop Inc. is the custodian of the B15 Steam Locomotive #299 and is stored in the old heritage listed Railway Goods Shed.
