The Ladysmith Tourist Railway had its monthly open day on Saturday, shining a light on the struggles facing the small town tourism industry.
Despite being only a gold coin donation to view the range of authentic machinery, railway lines and historic displays at the museum, the team are struggling to attract visitors.
Treasurer of the railway, Wally Bell, said their restrictions on what they can run on the tracks is a large contributor to their lack of business.
"We can't put our trikes on the lines for safety reasons, and have been fighting for over a year to get the licence to do so but it keeps getting ignored," he said.
"Hopefully we get something happening soon, because as soon as we have that up and running, we can actually take people out for a ride on the tracks and that's what will bring in the attention."
Mr Bell added that membership numbers were struggling too.
"We need new members and young people, otherwise there will be no one left to keep it afloat," he said.
