If you’re travelling through or live in the Casino area of NSW why don’t you stop into the Casino Mini Rail & Museum for a visit and say G’day. The mini rail is always looking for new members to join this humble organization and to participate in placing a smile on people’s faces. This mini rail is now the longest point to point miniature railway in Australia. To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the club a new video has been produced to commemorate 20 years of service and covers the commencement of railways world wide as well as Australia and explains why there are a difference in rail gauges. This production runs for 94 minutes and is a Passage Through Time.
The Casino Mini Rail & Museum will be celebrating the first 20 years of service and operation over the long weekend in October 2013 – (5th, 6th, & 7th October).

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 $4 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.
