Train Stop Cafe:
Just outside the township of Gundagai, heading north on the Hume Highway, there is a sleepy little tourist nook at Snake Gully at 5 mile creek. Turn off the Hume Highway at the BP Service centre and drive north along Annie Pyers Road 400 metres, and opposite the historic Inn carpark you will find a long lost treasure that has finally been given new breath!
Several Antique Train Cars with a central cafe. One car is full of Antique treasures and the other re-opened end of June 2011 as a dining car as it was in the late 80's.
Janet Clarke re-opened the cafe and cars February 2011. Train Stop Antiques and cafe is finally back in business.

The trains were renumbered 356 and coded BI in 1892 and although the
trains were revamped in 1933 to house toilets and offer a corridor
saloon BL design they would still be of interest to train enthusiast who
wish to see the William Thow design and specification to nineteenth
century carriage construction, materials and design, particularly the
change to standardized body construction, common components and
steel fabrication for carriage underframes.
They have a mansard roof with square ends constructed with timber and
covered in canvas. The Train bodies are sheathed in plywood sheets on
the sides and tongue and groove slats on the ends. You just don’t see
work like that anymore.
The Antique Train Stop offers something for every-one, so go and
have a look.
It’s only 5 miles from town out at Snake Gully diagonally opposite the
Dog on the Tuckerbox car park and Old Historic Inn.
I have enclosed a photo of what it looks like today.
They serve great coffee! It’s a lovely little outing close to town.

Snake Gully and Dog on the Tuckerbox Souvenirs are now available at Train Stop cafe SHOP.
