Interested in steam trains?
Why not try a day or two in Waikari during the summer season, or any time of the year?
The Weka Pass Express runs the first and third Sundays of each month throughout the year. Trains also run on the Sunday and Monday of most long weekends. Trains depart Glenmark Station Waipara for Waikari at about 11.30am and 2.00pm the return trip takes about 2 hours.
Trains are also available for hire throughout the year. Trains will normally be hauled by steam locomotive A428 but during the summer when total fire bans are in force in North Canterbury, trains will be hauled by our historic Dg class diesel electric locomotives.
Enquiries regarding services and bookings can be made by calling Waipara +64 3 3146813 or Christchurch +64 3 3894078.
