Mary Valley Rattler offers lovers a ticket to ride on the Valentine’s Love Train

1 February 2021

Love On The RattlerThe Mary Valley Rattler is offering couples the ultimate ‘romance of the rails’ experience with an exclusive Valentine’s Love Train service on Saturday evening 13 February.

In the perfect lead-up to Valentine’s Day, the Rattler Love Train will depart historic Gympie Station at 5pm, 13 February, taking a leisurely scenic sunset ride through the spectacular Mary Valley to the atmospheric village of Amamoor, with on-board bubbles and antipasto.

Returning to Gympie Station, couples will enjoy a romantic two course dinner at the station’s Rusty Rails Café prepared by chef Lee Speer that will include options such as a decadent Swedish chocolate love cake with raspberry sorbet.

General Manager of the Mary Valley Rattler, Michael Green, said that steam trains and romance had forever been coupled together, so offering the Rattler Love Train on the eve of Valentine’s Day was a ‘natural’ for the heritage railway.

“With Valentine’s Day falling on a Sunday, our Love Train provides the ultimate lead-in to the special day,” said Mr Green.

“You could say it’s the perfect way to get your romance on track, and an excellent opportunity for couples outside the region to arrange a weekend away in the glorious Mary Valley. We can guarantee a truly romantic and memorable experience.”
