Atherton Tableland Railway

The group aims to establish a Tourist/Heritage railway using the abandoned ex-Queensland Rail (QR) track between Platypus Park, Atherton and the top of the Herberton Range, some 14 KM (approximately 8.5 miles) to the south.

In 2010 the group took ownership of ex-QR #812 C17 steam locomotive and about the same time was granted provisional accreditation by Queensland Transport.

Details are on the railway's web site.
