Conserving Cultural Significance

Puffing Billy Railway is proud to offer a number of engineering services in support of the Tourist and Heritage Railway sector.

These are offered as part of our continued effort to conserve and demonstrate the cultural significance of steam power, and the historic forms of transport propelled by it.

As the second steam railway in the world to be preserved, Puffing Billy Railway continues to build on a wealth of experience spanning more than five decades.

For Puffing Billy Railway, operating and maintaining locomotives and rolling stock from all periods of its 120-year history has been integral to the preservation of traditional practices and machinery, which would otherwise have faded from the modern world.

With a dedicated team of tradesmen from a variety of backgrounds in industry, the Rolling Stock Branch combines traditional practices with ongoing innovation to care for historic assets in a contemporary environment.
