The Victorian Goldfields Railway

The Victorian Goldfields Railway has restored the old Castlemaine-Maldon VR line, and is currently running trains over the Maldon half of the line to a siding at Muckleford. They are working hard to run trains all the way into Castlemaine, but are being held up by protracted negotiations with the relevant authorities.
