Kuranda Scenic Railway

The Kuranda Scenic Railway operates from Cairns to Kuranda and return, with the journey taking around 2 hours, with a stop at 'Freshwater' station for tour buses, and one at Barron Falls to observe the waterfall. A pair of 1720 class locomotives haul each train with two down services services operating each morning, and two up services in the evening.

Treadle located before a set of points at Kuranda station

Fitted to the right-hand side rail, rail wheels depress the treadle when they roll over it, which prevents the points being thrown via a mechanical linkage back to the point mechanism.
