Train running arrangements – April School Holidays

School holidays – 13th to 29th April  inclusive – our trains are running every day.                                                                                          (After this date, our trains are running on Friday, Saturday and Sunday –  every weekend until the next school break).

ANZAC Day – Wednesday 25th April – the 10.45am train will not run due to services, but will start at 12 noon onwards.


Train times for the above:

With the exception of ANZAC Day (see above), all trains depart from Kawakawa Railway Station at 10.45am, 12 noon, 1.15pm, 2.30pm, and return after about 50 minutes. Please arrive about 10 – 15 minutes prior to departure to allow time to purchase tickets.

Single (one-way) tickets also available in either direction, bicycles carried free.

Reminder that Gabriel our steam engine has run out of puff – her boiler needs to be refurbished – see front page. However, we have several different vintage diesel engines which run the same fabulous route and are hauling all our trains at present.

Plenty of action to be seen! We look forward to welcoming you aboard…
