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!
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. New and upcoming events will be posted on this website and on our Facebook page Glenbrook Vintage Railway - make sure to follow us for the latest updates!
We have the ability to operate our private heritage train over most of the New Zealand National Rail Network. Our Rail Trips and Tours team have over 60 years of experience running Rail Tours in New Zealand and around the world - no-one else knows Rail Touring like we do! See more, do more, and relax on one of our guided Rail Tours.
