Lunch on Puffing Billy

Puffing BillyOn the weekend we joined my mum and dad for a belated birthday lunch (for my dad) on Puffing Billy, an old heritage railway near Melbourne.

It was a lovely sunny day, and after a short walk around Belgrave, we got on the train for our lunch. Apparently we had a casual driver, and none of us were prepared for the sudden start, which sent us all grabbing for our drinks! Once we were moving though, the jolting settled down, but the movement and noise of the train on the tracks kept reminding us we were on a train. On our journey to Lakeside we had our entree and main courses, and the food was very tasty. I had a dip selection, and baked blue eye fish. Model Railway, Lakeside

After our meal we arrived at Lakeside. We had a short walk around the lake and then visited the model railway, which was really impressive with the level of detail throughout the whole setup. We had about half an hour in Lakeside, so after that it was back to the train, and on the way back we had dessert. The view from the train varied from bushland to wide open vistas, and went over the historic Monbulk Creek Trestle Bridge.

All in all, it was a lovely day out, and a nice option which is close to Melbourne.
