Zig Zag Railway - Clarence
The Zig Zag Railway is closed indefinitely while work is undertaken. The Board of Zig Zag Railway is committed to reopening as soon as possible.
The Great Zig Zag Railway, the original rail line into the Lithgow Valley, was opened in 1869. The line was hailed as an engineering masterpiece of the 19th century. Today, the historic tourist railway traverses the 7.5 kilometre track, operating steam trains and vintage diesel locomotives.
A series of gently sloping ramps in the form of the letter 'Z', the Zig Zag passes through two tunnels and over three magnificent sandstone viaducts, all surrounded by the beautiful Blue Mountains escarpment.
