In addition to our Steam Train Experience and First Class Experience between Glenbrook and Waiuku, we also host Special Events and operate Trips & Tours by rail!

Events


At the Glenbrook Vintage Railway we host special events including the Day Out with Thomas and the Counties Energy Christmas Lights - Trains at Night. These family events are extremely popular and provide cherished memories for years to come. We're always reviewing and refreshing our event calendar.
