Only 50 min from central Christchurch, the Weka Pass Railway is a historic rural railway using both vintage steam and diesel-electric locomotives out of Waipara, North Canterbury.

Take a train ride on one of the public operating days, on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month, most Sundays in January and most public holidays. Perfect for a break on a trip to Hanmer Springs, Kaikora or while visiting the Waipara wine region.

Trains will usually be hauled by 1909 built "A" Class "Pacific" steam locomotive number 428. During exceptional fire risk in summer months, "A428" may be replaced with a vintage diesel locomotive.

Advanced purchase of tickets from the Weka Pass Railway website is recommended. Limited on-the-day ticket sales may be available from the station ticket office.

For the latest details on operating days please visit the Weka Pass Railway website.
