This is a wonderful opportunity to combine the joys of a vintage steam trip together with the celebrations of mid-winter Christmas.

Departing Feilding our 1930s carriages we travel to Palmerston North to pick up more passengers then we meander through the Manawatu Gorge with all its spectacular scenery to Woodville.

Departing Woodville we make a right-hand turn that takes us to Pahiatua and past the new Fonterra Dairy factory then on to the Pahiatua railway Station, onwards to Eketahuna and into the northern Wairarapa running through Mauriceville and entering the beginning of the Wairarapa Wine Country.

Arriving at the Masterton Railway Station you will then be bused to the fabulous Copthorne Hotel where the dining room awaits, festooned with Christmas decorations, Christmas trees, and Christmas music. You will almost be looking for Santa himself.

From the time of your arrival at the Copthorne Hotel, you will be able to take advantage of the comprehensive bar or indulge in wine tastings available at the stands of several winemakers. These local winemakers from are going to show what wine making is all about.

Buffet Lunch starts at 1pm and for more information on the menu please visit the official website.

At the 3:30pm, you will board your bus for return to the Masterton Railway Station where the train will be waiting to return you to Palmerston North and Feilding. This will be a licenced train and you will be able to purchase drinks on the way home.

This train is hauled by a Kiwi Rail Diesel locomotive.

If you are unable to book online, drop into the Palmerston North, Wanganui or Hawera i-Site’s or The Feilding Info Centre and they can book you there, an additional booking fee applies.
