Young and old are able to explore Blacktown’s bushland backyard on a miniature steam train.

Blacktown City Council is working with the North Western Model Engineers (NWME), Western Sydney Parklands Trust and Signature Property Developers to construct a miniature railway at Nurragingy Reserve Doonside.

Blacktown City Mayor Stephen Bali MP said the little train will be a big hit with the community.

“The Nurragingy Miniature Railway will be an authentic small-scale railway experience which will be terrific fun for adults and children alike,” Mayor Bali said.

“The railway’s 400 metre route takes you through the Nurragingy Reserve in Doonside.

“Council has upgraded the nearby amenities block and further infrastructure such as carriage storage and platforms will be added to create an authentic railway experience on a miniature scale

“It will be a unique and enjoyable way to explore the Reserve.”

The North Western Model Engineers successfully applied for the ‘My Community Project’ receiving $200,000 from the NSW Government to assist with the first stage of construction.

The train is expected to take on board its first public passengers on Sunday, 20 October, 2019. The train will operate on the third Sunday of every month, as well as on additional special days.

The train is located in Nurragingy between Cockatoo, Boronia and Currawong picnic areas.
