Travel with Steam Incorporated north from Kapiti via the spectacular Manawatu Gorge to Woodville for a special treat on Mothers Day.

The train will be hauled by one of our coal fired steam locomotives and we will be using our fleet of classic red heritage carriages.

Passenger stops will be Paekakariki, Paraparaumu, Waikanae, Otaki, Levin, Shannon and Palmerston North.

The train will include a buffet car selling hot food, drinks and snacks, and our souvenir counter for all sorts of railway and steam memorabilia.

While travelling through the Manawatu Gorge you will be able to view the large slips that have closed the highway on the opposite side of the river.

There will be a one-hour stopover at Woodville while the loco is turned and serviced. You will be able to watch it running around a special “balloon loop” to turn.

At Woodville, we hope to have some food and craft stalls set up at the station showcasing local produce and crafts. Included will be the local Rotary group offering a range of hot snacks. If you want some exercise it is a 15-minute walk from the station to the town centre.

On the return journey, we intend making a stop at a suitable location for you to photograph the train in action.

We also offer group discounts for 8 to 15 passengers and for 16 or more passengers. It is also possible to book your own carriage. These range from 40 to 55 seats. Please enquire.

Tickets and confirmed times will be mailed to you ten days prior to the excursion. All seating is preallocated.
