Final ride for Blue Mountains icon
The Blue Mountains' famous Scenic Railway, which has thrilled 25 million visitors on its journey down to the pristine rainforest floor, will make its last trip on Sunday 13th January 2013.
The world's steepest passenger railway, with an incline of 52 degrees, is to be replaced by a new Swiss-designed train and railway line under a $30 million redevelopment. Scenic World's new train is expected to be completed for Easter 2013.
Fondly known as 'Mountain Devil', the current train has taken almost 700,000 journeys through the rainforest corridor to a parcel of the World Heritage-listed Jamison Valley.
Siblings and Scenic World Joint Managing Directors, Anthea and David Hammon, said the decommissioning of the train would be a nostalgic time for their three generation family business, stating "this train has been a big part of our childhood, the generations before us, and the wider Blue Mountains community.
"But it is now the time for a new chapter at Scenic World and this railway transformation will provide our visitors with a fresh perspective on the rainforest with some new surprises entwined with our history."
