The small town of Clarence is located along Bell’s Line of Road between Bell and Lithgow. Clarence rates a special mention as the home of the famous Zig Zag Railway.
The Zig Zag Railway was constructed in the late 1800’s and was a remarkable engineering breakthrough, overcoming the steep descent of the Blue Mountains via a system of underground tunnels and viaducts.
The Zig Zag Railway, steam trains, operate every weekend, public holiday and during the week during NSW school holidays. Vintage rail motors run every other day.
