Event Details

We are back! (but cautiously)
After spending time reviewing our COVID-19 Management plans and along with Government’s guidance, Our Committee and Operations teams have given a “Clear to Proceed with Caution” to resume operations this Labour Weekend, Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th October. Please note as we are still at Level 2, there are a few changes around our operation, being: All passengers need to scan or sign in and Everyone over 12 years must wear a face mask when at the station and on board our train.
Steam train excursion from Gisborne to Muriwai and return. The excursion includes a 30 minutes picnic/photo break at Muriwai where there is a grass area with plenty of room for a picnic etc. So bring along your goodies – hot water is available in the Buffet carriage.
The excursion travels across the longest railway bridge in the North Island and is the only train in the world to cross the main runway of a fully operational airport. It has been known for Air New Zealand aircraft to wait on the runway for the train to cross ahead of the aircraft – great viewing for both aircraft and train passengers! (Check out the photo of AirNZ Flight NZ8161 on 26th April 2021).
