Wonderfully nostalgic and simply magical. The Engine and coaches looked brand new - excellently maintained. Only wished the track was at least 40 km long and the trip was for a 80 km up and down run.

They should serve complimentary tea and coffee with light savouries or have stalls selling home made sandwiches and fish and chips and beer and soft drinks.

I truly wish the journey was longer.

Our tour had an early morning stop at Glenbrook. The train ride consisted of number 179 pulling red open and closed carriages. I was allowed a footplate ride for half the journey. Great fun. The loco works and shed are well worth a visit with engines that are used on the main lines for special trains. we had a photo shoot on the return trip. Back at the station is a nice shop with books and DVDs for the enthusiast, as well as a nice restaurant served by ladies in period costume.
This is a must for any rail enthusiast visiting New Zealand . Wonderful friendly staff who volunteer their time for a great cause.

Been many times, it is always a great place to take children on their promotional days. Ride the train, or take the double decker bus around the area. Even visiting the Glenbrook train workshops is very interesting for train enthusiasts

A great trip to Waiuku to see the Christmas Display at the Waiuku Town Hall. The volunteers do a fantastic job of running the railway.
