Operating 3 NZ replica locomotives our track will give you a view of the beautiful Victoria Esplanade. We have 2 stations to board the train.

The railway is operated by a totally volunteer operated society.
Great fun for all the family and a unique way to capture memories that will last a lifetime.

We can also be hired for special excursion trips outside our normal hours, for educational groups, tour groups, weddings etc.
