A welcome aboard glass of champagne sets the scene. A short introductory talk explains some of the background and actual events that led Agatha Christie to pen the novel.

We view the movie as our train slowly steams through the night to Maldon. Accompanied by the sights and sounds of our steam engine, the level crossing bells, the passing lights in the night, it is an unforgettable experience.

You are aboard the “Orient Express" - Murder on the Orient Express.

During the journey and at interval at Maldon the fully stocked bar is open and our stewards are on hand to offer a drinks' and snack service that Poirot would be proud of! On the return to Castlemaine watch Poirot use his little grey cells to solve the ultimate "whodunit".

Dinner starts at 5.30, and you must show your movie ticket. It’s a leisurely 2-minute walk to Platform 3

Choose to stay the night in Castlemaine or take the regional train to and from Southern Cross Station. There are trains every hour to Castlemaine during the day but the train back to Southern Cross will leave at 10.55pm and arrives at 00.55am.
