Silver Stream Railway (named after the silver coloured stream {Hull's Creek} that runs beside the railway) is a heritage railway near the suburb of Silverstream in the Hutt Valley 30km from Wellington, New Zealand. It regularly operates former New Zealand Goverment Railway and ex industrial steam and diesel locomotives along a restored section of the Wellington to Upper Hutt railway that was bypassed in 1954.


The beginnings of Silver Stream Railway were in 1967 when the Wellington branch of the New Zealand Railway and Locomotive Society (which changed is name to Silver Stream Railway Incorporated in 1983) began a collection of locomotives and rolling stock. Tracklaying on the old formation of the Hutt Valley Line did not begin until 1977. The collection of locomotives and rolling stock had previously been stored at a site by the Gracefield Branch in Seaview, and this was transferred to the present Silverstream site in 1984. The official opening of the full 1.5 kilometre track took place on 15 February 1986.
