Steam Train Rides Sunday 16th November


This coming Sunday the 16th our steam locomotive L509 built in 1877 will be running hauling a proper train made up of once familiar wooden carriages and guards van.

Gates open at 11am and trains depart from the station in Reynolds Bach Drive (the road up to the tip) every 20 minutes approx. and travel over 1.5km of restored track that was once part of the main line from Wellington to Upper Hutt. Each trip takes around 15 minutes return. Parking is available opposite the entrance to Silverstream Retreat. Admission tickets are valid all day so you can enjoy unlimited rides all day until the last train that leaves around 3:45pm.
