This superb exhibition is heading your way - by train!

A powerful KiwiRail engine is pulling new scenic carriages and four themed containers, each packed with fascinating displays about rail in New Zealand.

Stopping at the Port of Lyttelton, there will be family fun, prizes and giveaways.

Entry is free and everyone is welcome, so don't miss Keeping NZ On the Move.

Other activities:

Jump into the drivers seat of a KiwiRail locomotive and talk with the locomotive engineer (train driver).

Come and see one of the heavy machinery vehicles we use to maintain the railway network, and talk with an operator.

Canterbury Railway Society will display a range of heritage trains at Ferrymead. (Free railcar shuttles will operate between Ferrymead and Lyttelton Port).

Port of Lyttelton will also be there to celebrate 150 years of rail in New Zealand and Mainfreight will be running a sausage sizzle.

150th Rail Anniversary memorabilia items will be on sale inside the KiwiRail Scenic passenger carriages. Come and buy a piece of history.
