Due to the very dry weather our fire permit has been cancelled and we can not run this excursion on the 1st of Feb 2015. It has been postponed until the 19th of April 2015. All passengers booked already will be contacted and offered a transfer to the new date or a refund. Feilding and District Steam Rail apologies for this inconvenience.

Feilding Steam Rail invites you to a leisurely trip through the Manawatu Gorge to Pahiatua and return. The train will consist of our own four red 1940 vintage carriages, that have been restored at our base in Feilding. The train will depart from Feilding and travel to Palmerston North to pick up more passengers. Our locomotive will swap ends for the run through to Woodville. Then out on to the plains of the Northern Waiarapra, where wind turbine views are unsurpassed. At our destination you will have the opportunity (for a small charge $5) to view the Pahiatua Railcar Society's depot including their railcars RM 5, RM31 and RM121.

There will be a sausage sizzle and tea and coffee available on the Pahiatua platform. Leaving Pahiatua at 1pm for our return journey home. On our return trip we stop at Woodville, where you can watch the locomotive run around the balloon loop to hook up to the other end of the train. When will return to Palmerston North Railway Station, the locomotive will swap ends for its run back to Feilding.
