Every year Diamond Valley Railway runs continuously for twelve hours all the way from 11am to 11pm. All the proceeds from this event are donated to local charities. The donations will be made on the day.

The next annual Community 12 Hour Run will be held on Sunday 8th March 2020 from 11am - 11pm.

Please note that the Eltham SES will be assisting with parking, please follow their directions upon entering and exiting the park. All tickets are $3. Please follow the instructions of DVR Volunteers to ensure that your ride on the miniature trains is safe and enjoyable.
