Join in with the action this October on the Weka Pass Railway.

5 English Electric Diesel Locomotives all in one place – all on show for one afternoon only! 6th October, mark the date on your calendar. Commemorating 40 years since the closure of the Waiau Branch in 1978.

Two passenger trains will run to Waikari on this day. The first passenger train – departing Glenmark Station at 1:30pm – is expected to be doubleheaded by Diesel Traction Group’s Di 1102 and Dg 772.

Passengers on the second passenger train of the day – departing Glenmark Station at 4:30pm – will endure fine evening views along the line. Quadheaded with 4 locomotives on the drawbar (an insane 3,500 horsepower lashup), this trip will be one to be remembered!

For full event details and for advance ticket purchases please visit the Weka Pass Railway homepage.
