Been many times, it is always a great place to take children on their promotional days. Ride the train, or take the double decker bus around the area. Even visiting the Glenbrook train workshops is very interesting for train enthusiasts

A great trip to Waiuku to see the Christmas Display at the Waiuku Town Hall. The volunteers do a fantastic job of running the railway.

We enjoyed this even if the day started off poorly with the announcement that the steam engine had broken down and had been replaced by a diesel. Obviously these things happen and as steam buffs we understand, so we were delighted when they got the engine fixed for half of our return run with "Diana". Quite authentic experience with beautifully... More

We have been here many times with our boys. Great for kids to look, view and ride on a steam engine. They have 'cowboy' days and 'Thomas Tank Engine' days. Just brilliant for the kids. There is a little farm park nearby if you would like to visit there as well. If they have baby 'kune kune pigs' on display,... More

This is a hidden gem just down the southern motorway. Head to Waiuku and the signposts will point you in the right direction. Closed until Labour weekend and then it will be all go. Watch out for Thomas weekends and other specials.

The Thomas the Tank Engine Day is fun. Kids who like Thomas really enjoy the short trips on the made up engines... and you can opt to take the longer ride to the workshop, which allows you to get off and look around the old engines - great fun!
