About the Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society

The Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society Inc. (PRRPS) is a non-profit organisation formed in 1973 to preserve the railway through Pichi Richi Pass - the most scenic part of the original Ghan railway, featuring deep rock cuttings, superb stone wall embankments and spectacular iron bridges.

PRRPS has progressively restored and operated the railway as a working museum. PRRPS has also preserved a large collection of historic locomotives, goods and passenger vehicles, restoring many to working order.

Volunteers are crucial to the ongoing viability of the railway. You can help preserve an important part of Australia's heritage by becoming a member of PRRPS. Visit the Volunteering page for more information on how you can help.

The Patron of the Pichi Richi Railway Preservation Society is His Excellency Rear Admiral Kevin Scarce AC CSC RANR, Governor of South Australia.
