Glenbrook Vintage Railway (GVR) is New Zealand’s premier heritage train attraction, with steam train trips available on selected Sundays from late October through to early June.

GVR operates over 7.5 kms of track from Glenbrook to Victoria Avenue in Waiuku. We are a heritage steam train railway located 50 minutes south of Auckland city. Opened in 1977, GVR has become a major tourist attraction for the Franklin District, coming from humble beginnings in the late 1960’s to the major enterprise that it is today.

Over 100 volunteers lend their time to keep the magic of steam trains alive for today’s generation to enjoy. People of all ages and backgrounds come together to give over 30,000 people annually a experience of a lifetime.
