The unique train accommodation at Ruwenzori is in four large antique railway carriages – which feature all mod-cons for your comfort. To top it off, the whole place is yours in peace and privacy.
Sleep in Style in
An original 1920s TAM Sleeping Car, with exquisite original features including polished cedar panelling, pressed metal ceilings and brass and silver fittings.
Built in 1890, originally a Sydney passenger “Cowboy car”, the Dining Car is now the central hub of food and entertainment at Ruwenzori.
Built in 1899 as a premiere passenger car for the main intercity routes, the “Pullman” has been luxuriously remodelled to sleep up to four people.
A perfect and private single bedroom in its own classic carriage. Originally built as a coalfields brake-van in the 1920’s, the 4 wheel ‘Caboose’ sits on its own small branch line of track beside the Dining Car
The Guards Van is a charming compact Queen bedroom with en-suite, was opened in April 2021 and is the most recent addition to our train stay .
Built by Scott and friends in 1988 from original railway station components, the Station is our social hub. The large atmospheric room is a showcase for some of Scott’s private collection.
We can provide a high chair and travel cot if required.
In addition to the three self contained rail accommodation carriages, Ruwenzori features many fascinating historical items from our railway past – you could spend all day just walking discovering the treasures.
Surrounding the carriages are cottage-style gardens, fountains and an abundance of unusual objects which contribute to the unique and fascinating nature of Ruwenzori. In every corner of the garden is something interesting to see, or a secluded place to relax.
