A NEVER-be­fore-of­fered rail­way ad­ven­ture will give slow travel lovers a her­itage steam and diesel jour­ney across New South Wales and Vic­to­ria in May 2019. The six-day Great South­ern Loop tour, launched by Cruise Ex­press, be­gins on May 30, 2019, aboard a re­stored 1966 diesel lo­co­mo­tive from Sydney’s Cen­tral Sta­tion on to the Great South­ern Line. The tour in­cludes a ride of the iconic Spirit of Progress train to Mel­bourne. High­lights in­clude stops at Echuca, where pas­sen­gers will board a Mur­ray pad­dle steamer for a lunch cruise, a coach trans­fer to Grif­fith for a pri­vate wine tast­ing ses­sion at De Bor­toli Wines and an au­then­tic Ital­ian lunch at the Pic­colo Fam­ily Farm.
