This tour ran up to Ballarat via North Geelong and the freight only line through Gheringhap and Lal Lal. It then traced the broad gauge line from Ballarat to Ararat that was once the main line to Adelaide. At Ararat lunch was served on the platform along with a visit to the Ararat Railway Museum that is located right next door to the station in the old drivers depot buildings. The DERM ran beautifully all day with everyone thoroughly enjoying the trip.
