Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society

PRRPS is a non-profit organisation formed in 1973 to preserve the railway through Pichi Richi Pass the most scenic part of the original Ghan railway to Alice Springs. This route features deep rock cuttings, superb stone wall embankments and spectacular iron bridges.

PRRPS has progressively restored and operated the railway as a working museum. PRRPS has also preserved a large collection of historic locomotives, goods and passenger vehicles, restoring many to working order.

Tourist Trains

Today it operates a variety of historic tourist trains on a seasonal basis between March and November with the emphasis on using steam engines whenever possible.

The Afghan Express - photo by Phil Durand

Allow 2.5 hours for the return journey to Woolshed Flat or 4 hours to Stirling North. The track was extended to Port Augusta in 2001. There are usually photo stops to allow passengers to view and photograph the train in action from the track side. There are many interesting things to see along the way including historic sites, rugged scenery and fauna.
