The Ida Bay Railway Preservation Society Inc is a community-based, not-for-profit registered charity. It was formed to save this railway for the people of Tasmania and visitors to enjoy. The railway has stunning scenery and a rich history that deserves to be told. It is also heritage listed
Until it was taken over by government several years ago, for 15 years Meg Thornton ran Ida Bay Railway as a tourist venture. Some of our annual tours included it in their itinerary and everybody loved the little railway.
The photos below are from those tours..
