Our trains are running every Friday, Saturday and Sunday every weekend (the cancelled trains on 11th are now running).
Trains depart from Kawakawa Railway Station at 10am, 12 noon and 2pm (wet or dry weather) for a trip about 1 ½ hours to return to Kawakawa. We run trains all year.
There is no need to book for diesel engine trains. For more information re times and fares see under “Visitor Info”.
For cyclists – our trains operate as a cycle-train as a temporary link to join the Twin Coast Cycleway (Pou Herenga Tai) between Taumarere and Lone Cow Station in the Te Akeake area. This is a koha gold coin ‘Cycle-Train’ service.
We look forward to welcoming you all aboard!
Please be aware that if there has been poor weather, flooding may occur in the valley. BOIVR may then have to cease running trains at short notice for safety reasons if the water rises.
