Small Steam Sunday 30th September.

Join us for the return to service of the most recently restored steam locomotive and wagon in our fleet.

Sunday the 30th of September will see the first public outing of the only operating locomotive of its type in New Zealand PWD531 and our 1897 built goods wagon L4246. Both have recently undergone major overhauls in our workshop and this is your chance to welcome them back into service. The wagon is fitted with seats to give a new experiance of travel on our railway.


PLEASE NOTE: As the goods wagon is open to the weather , SSR reserves the right to change this event to  a Diesel Day featuring De508 should the weather on the 30th be undesirable.
