"Elvis is close to my heart because we grew up with Elvis in India," Alfred Vaz, who dressed in a blue flared jumpsuit and also goes by his stage name of Bollywood Elvis, or Raja, told Reuters television beside the locomotive.

"From a very little kid, we always used to gyrate and try sing Elvis like: One for the money, two for the show," he said, launching in to a rendition of "Blue Suede Shoes".

During the six-hour train trip over mountains and through wheatfields and grazing pastures, Elvis tribute artists will entertain the passengers.

The festival, in its 26th year, is expected to attract about 25,000 people to Parkes, more than doubling its population for the duration of the four-day event.

The focus this year is on celebrating 50 years since Presley's 1968 "comeback special," an intimate and unplugged show credited with reviving his then-flagging recording career.

Street markets, lookalike contests, parades, a car show, displays of Presley artefacts and tribute performances are planned.

"It's a must for all Elvis fans," said tribute artist Kingsley Rock, whose website promises: "If you want the King to sing at your thing, give me a ring."

"Its just one big party and everyone there loves Elvis, why wouldn't you not come back year after year," he told Reuters.
