Billy is a steam train and one of the finest preserved steam railways in the world. It still runs on its original track from Belgrave to Gembrook through the Dandenong Ranges.

Puffing Billy is operated by volunteers. We had a chance to be on the Puffing Billy last week. Billy sure was a whole lot of fun.

Our ride took us from Belgrave up to Menzie's Creek. It was a wonderful experience to be on an old steam train in an older railway station run by wonderful volunteers. If you are in Melbourne, don't forget to lookup Billy.
