If you head for a little place called Rosewood, tucked away in the Bremer River valley, the train is waiting for you on the last Sunday of each month. Rosewood is 50km west of the city of Brisbane and 18km west of Ipswich and is served by the electric train from Ipswich.

The town is home to the Rosewood Railway Museum, which seeks to re-create the atmosphere of a typical Queensland branch line of the steam and early diesel era. The museum is an operating railway that includes a PB15 steam locomotive that hauls restored wooden carriages plus a variety of diesel locomotives and railmotors. The line is high in the hills above Rosewood so there are plenty of steep grades where the steam engine has to work hard.

The museum, part of the Australian Railway Historical Society Queensland Division, also has an extensive collection of restored carriages and wagons on display.

Trains run on the last Sunday of each month and the museum is open as a static display on the other Sundays. Cab rides in the vintage diesel locomotives are available around the main depot yard at Kunkala Station on running days.
