It is with regret that the Casino Mini Rail will be increasing the cost of a train ride from $4 to $5 per person as of the 1st January 2014, the new cost still covers free admission to the Rail Museum at Old Casino Station.
Over the past few years we have endeavored to keep the cost down but unfortunately we are unable to maintain the operation without this increase. It was decided at the December monthly meeting by the Members due to the financial increases in the operation of the Society in rents, rates, fuel, electricity and insurances.
Thank you for your understanding regarding this increase.

The Casino Mini Rail & Museum is run totally by volunteers for the enjoyment of families and for those who wish to know more about railways, particularly the railway in this area.
Proceeds generated by the mini rail, annual membership fees, rides, and donations are all put back into the mini rail for maintenance of track/rolling stock and surroundings, rents and rates.
The railway track is a dual gauge line consisting 7¼ & 5 inch gauges. It is the largest dual gauge track in New South Wales, and the second largest in Australia. A round trip on our mini rail is around 25 minutes at a cost of $5 per person. All of our drivers are trained, qualified and licensed. Each driver is equipped with a two way radio and trains are operated under a modified Safeworking System known as "Train Order Working".
The Casino township is known as the "Beef Capital of Australia" and the mini rail is ranked as one of the towns major attractions.
Enjoy these presentations on the mini rail and remember to come and visit us the next time your in the region.
