Join us on Saturday 16th May 2020 on a diesel-hauled excursion ‘around the block’, from Feilding via the Wairarapa to Wellington, returning to Feilding via the Main Trunk.
Our journey starts at Feilding and our first stop is at Palmerston North before travelling through the magnificent Manawatu Gorge.
At Woodville we turn on the balloon loop and head out onto the open plains of northern Wairarapa. Passing the Fonterra dairy milk plant at Pahiatua we proceed to Eketahuna for a short stop.
Watch as the windmill turbines turn lazily in the sun as our carriages head towards Masterton. We pass Carterton and Greytown, then we enter the famous Rimutaka Tunnel. Emerging at Maymorn we proceed through Upper Hutt and the Hutt Valley and on to Wellington and time for relaxation for a few hours.
Then it’s “All Aboard” as our train speeds past the western suburbs of Porirua and on to Paraparaumu. After a short stop at Otaki we gallop through the Horowhenua and back to Palmerston North and finally Feilding.
Our train will be licensed, allowing you a glass or wine or beer on the return journey. No BYO. We will also have a small range of food for sale on the train.
