Train Rides - Olga The Replica Steam Train

Olga The Tourist Train

Train Station
Activity - Olga - Steam Train Replica

Rides on Olga the Tourist Train are a fun activity when you visit the Gold Rush Colony in Mogo - fun for kids and the children at heart.

You can come for a ride when Olga is running - usually during school holidays and on long weeekends. Tickets  can be purchased at Reception. You do not need to pay full Entry fee - you can just come and ride the train only.

This is a great treat to include in a day out with the kids when you are out and about exploring the South Coast NSW, Mogo village or the Mogo Zoo. The Original Gold Rush Colony is just up Annett St, 200m from the Princes Highway in Mogo NSW.

After purchasing a ticket you go to the Woodies Train Station, which was built by the Eurobodalla Woodworkers Guild.

After boarding Olga you go on a journey that travels past the John Denver memorial, below the camp Kitchen, towards Mogo State Forest with its 160 year old Spotted Gum, around the camp fire, along the scenic lakes, with ducks and geese and Gold Rush Mini-golf, through the Machinery Shed past the Woodies workshop and back to the station.

Olga the Steam Train, her Carriage and concrete sleepers for the tracks, were constructed by Hans Radovitz and named after his late mother. The train ran successfully in Nerriga.

Just as Betsy the Steam Engine on site at The Original Gold Rush Colony no longer consumes vast quantities of timber fuel, so Olga has been constructed to look like a steam train - but uses alternative energy. She runs on a Toyota engine, but steam comes out of the funnel.

Children delight when they hear the train whistle and clattering of the flanged, bogied train wheels on the rails.

Please phone to check on her timetable. For more information please click the link below.
