Queensland's rail heritage operations are state accredited and operate under regulations that ensure human comfort/safety and environmental protection.

Most are operated by volunteers and are looking for additional members to assist with operational and maintenance duties. While some tasks require specialised skills/training, many can be done by almost anyone. These include mowing, cleaning, sales, guiding visitors, fund raising, etc., as well as track maintenance and other heavy duties.

Follow up any of the operating railways or tour groups listed by tourist zones for details.

Modeller, Heritage and Railfan Organisations

Railways inspire researchers, modellers and railfans, as well as support groups and regulators... and Queensland's mainline, branch, shire and cane railways are no exception. This selection is representative, rather than being exhaustive.
