A chance to ride behind our vintage diesel electric locomotive De508 built in 1952, which will be pulling a train of the once common red wooden carriages. Gates open at 11am and trains depart from the station in Reynolds Bach Drive (the road up to the tip) every 20 minutes approx. and travels over 1.5km of restored track that was once part of the main line from Wellington to Upper Hutt. Each trip takes around 15 minutes return.

Parking is available opposite the entrance to Silverstream Retreat. Entry tickets are valid all day so you can enjoy as many trips as you want through until the last train that leaves around 3:45pm. Bring a picnic or purchase an Tip Top ice cream or snack from our shop located in the station building.
