Feilding & Districts Steam Rail Society is proud to welcome you on board our Steam Sunday excursion. Experience the magic of classic rail travel behind a real steam engine as you take in the exclusive sights, sounds and emotions our classic train has offers on this spectacular outing to Taihape.

Enjoy the wide plains vistas of the Manawatu and the rugged landscapes of the Rangitikei as your journey soars over majestic viaducts and hurries through tunnels on its way to the agribusiness centre that is Taihape township. Photo opportunities abound whenever one of the remaining ‘Kings of Steam’ thunders through the countryside, and this excursion will feature its share, as the locomotive is turned on the turntable at Taihape, and at stations and waysides along the route. A one and a half hour stop-over means there will be plenty of time to get photos, and take in some of the features that Taihape is famous for, like lunch at one of the many great cafés (Brown Sugar, Café Telephonique, Laura’s and Soul Food come to mind). Art, clothing and curios provide attractions also, and of course most of the regulars, like Subway, are to be found nearby. Our timetable sees you back in Feilding in plenty of time to digest and talk about the many great moments, sights and sounds you will experience on your “journey back in time” as you travel our unique Steam Sunday excursion train behind the mighty Wab794.
