Kapiti Coast Pullman
A private charter that offered Pullman service to the guests on a trip from Kapiti to Woodville running via the Manawatu Gorge. The charter made extensive use of one of our table cars and lounge car. The addition of a second table car to our fleet in late 2023 will double the table seating we can offer. Always a popular feature with groups.
Included are a couple of pics from our public trips when a group of passengers self catered.
