SETS has been running electric train and related tours for nearly 30 years. Our
electric train tours have been conducted with State Rail's/Railcorp's/Sydney Trains's fleet and with SETS's own
locomotives. Many of these tours have commemorated the last revenue service of particular types of
rolling stock or last use of sections of the Sydney railway infrastructure. We have
covered the majority of the electrified Greater Sydney area over the years, and many of our routes
include traversal of lines often not seen by the regular commuter. Other tours we have conducted
are of railway, tram, bus or other heritage significance - from disused railway tunnels, to train
manufacturers, maintenance centres, museums, power stations, and even the BHP steel works.
Once again, many of our destinations include places that are usually not accessible by the public.
The following list summarises all of our tours SETS has conducted in the past
- back to when SETS was founded. The list is in reverse chronological order - most recent tours are
