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.
Our Day out with Thomas events are held each year during March and November.
Visit our website for more details about our operating days and special events.
Very clean and lots to see, it was a big hit for my train obsessed 4 year old. He had the best time. Thanks again!
Went for the thomas day out event that they had - was great service and awesome event only bit is pricing is a bit expensive - other then that would definitely be going back
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).
Don't forget to check the operating days and times before you go - as they don't run all year round!
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 ;-)
Also worth keeping in mind that you can use to get to the Waiuku Xmas Grotto during the Christmas period - as Waiuku is the other platform.
Would be great to see Auckland Transport run the 'special line' out to them from Papakura more often!
One of the places to visit when you run out of options in school holidays. Highly recommend 'Thomas the engine ' weekends as worth visiting with the toddlers.
