Steam weekend in Celebration of 150 years of Rail – 26/27/28th October

Join the Bay of Islands Vintage Railway in a Steam Weekend Celebration of 150 years of Rail on the oldest line in North Island!
See our engines and other rolling stock on display. Visit the shop and ride on our trains:

Seymour, a 0-4-2 Peckett, is the last new steam engine to be imported into New Zealand and has been kindly loaned for this event by the Whangarei Steam & Model Railway Club. Seymour will be pulling Moa, a replica 1871 carriage created on site by our BOIVR skilled craftsmen.

Our normal service will be running throughout the weekend, with train departures from Kawakawa Railway Station at 10.45am, 12 noon, 1.15pm and 2.30pm.

In addition, Seymour & Moa will run short trips between the above train rides – a total of 8 per day. As Moa only has 12 seats – it will be a first come, first served basis for this ride.

A great photo opportunity!
