The Rattler ‘Love Train’ will depart historic Gympie Station at 5pm on 14 February, taking a leisurely scenic sunset ride through the spectacular Mary Valley with on-board entertainment.

On arrival at Amamoor Station at 6pm, couples will enjoy canapes and bubbles on the platform as they watch the train turn on the heritage turntable before they return to Gympie for a cocktail-style evening of canapés, live entertainment and dancing with the Doo Wop Girls until 9pm.
