Supported and operated by amateur railway enthusiasts, with the assistance of the Victorian Government Railways, the Puffing Billy has become famous throughout Australia. Takes a light-hearted look at the problems of operating the railway. An affectionate salute to the people who keep this little railway running and to locomotive enthusiasts everywhere.
