GVR Steam Train Experience
Come with us on a nostalgic 15km trip back in time through beautiful rural countryside to the historic town of Waiuku on the Manukau Harbour aboard our steam train and experience the authentic recreation of a bygone era.
Experience luxury travel in our First Class Parlour Car.
Day out Thomas events are held November and March of each year.
Kids fun days are amazing and well worth the trip out to see the animals and steam trains running.Highly recommended
A good memorable place, good for taking the kids when they have special event days. They have trains and animals on those days, a bit more interesting than MOTAT if moving trains are the thing to look at.
A great day for the kids to catch a steam engine train. But keep an eye out when Thomas comes to town, this is always a hit with kids
Don't forget to check the operating days and times before you go - as they don't run all year round!
However a fantastic day with the kids to catch a steam engine; and also look at all the ones they've got at the workshop (where they stop partway through the journey).
Keep a look out for the Thomas the Tank Engine Weekend if you've got kids into Thomas; otherwise avoid that weekend for your visit ;-)
Would be great to see Auckland Transport run the 'special line' out to them from Papakura more often!
