Byron Bay Railroad Company has restored an out of action heritage train, is fully repairing three kilometres of railway line, is reinvigorating and preserving an out of action rail corridor and providing an affordable public transport solution for locals and visitors. All at no cost to ratepayers, at no cost to government at any level. The train will operate on energy from the sun, with one diesel engine remaining solely as emergency back-up. Solar panels on the train and storage shed will generate the equivalent amount of energy required to operate the train daily, charging the on-board battery bank. As far as we are aware this is a world-first solar conversion and BBRC is proud to bring this technology and solution to Byron Bay.
