The Mary Valley Rattler is offering a special LOVE TRAIN service for this year's Valentine's Day (14 February) with a sunset journey that couples the romance of the rails with great food, entertainment and scenery.
Organisers of the inaugural Valentine's Day service are looking for new, emerging and established couples wanting to celebrate their relationships in 'steamy' style.
The Rattler Love Train will depart historic Gympie Station at 5pm, 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 canapes and live entertainment and dancing with the Doo Wop Girls till 9pm.
Tickets are $99 per person for Rattler Love Train and Gympie Station dine option, with the ticket including the train journey, on board entertainment, canapes and bubbles at Amamoor Station and cocktail style canapes at Gympie Station.
For those who want to enjoy the evening at Gympie Station, without taking the train ride, a two hour entertainment package is available from 7pm to 9pm, including a welcome drink, cocktail style canapes, live music and dancing for just $59 per person.
General Manager of the Mary Valley Rattler, Michael Green, said that steam trains and romance had forever been coupled together, so introducing the Rattler Love Train for Valentine's Day was a 'natural' for the historic railway.
"The return of the Rattler has been very special for the Mary Valley and Gympie communities, and we'd like to see couples from the local area and all over Australia jump onboard for what will be a truly romantic and memorable experience," said Mr Green.
"For anyone considering proposing, what better way to get their relationship off on the right track than onboard the Rattler? They can bring the ring, and we'll provide the bubbles, entertainment and dancing."
