Christmas Twilight Express

A relaxed evening out by train from Kapiti to the Manawatu and return.

Sunday 6 December 2020

As part of our Grand Circle tour we are offering you the opportunity to enjoy a relaxed evening out by train. Sit back and enjoy the late afternoon sun (and sunset) as you travel with us from Kapiti to the Manawatu & return in one of our heritage carriages hauled by one of our restored diesel locomotives.

Bring a sandwich, bring a hamper and importantly bring a group of friends for a pre-Christmas evening outing.

Departs Paraparaumu at 5.55pm, and arrives back about 10.30pm.  There will be a 50 minute to one hour stopover at Palmerston North while the locomotive is turned for the trip back.
