Come, step back in time with a ride on a Model T Ford railcar and museum guided tour, with the driver giving a special personalized 45-minute conducted tour around our site. Including an interactive model railway, 2 steam locomotives, vintage movie theater, old printing presses, and much more… Tours leave: 11 am, 12 pm, 1 pm, 2 pm & 3 pm

Days, where the steam train is running, there will be no personalized guided tours, the museum will be open to walking through at your own pace. (on those days 1 ticket and you can ride both Steam Train and Railcar)

When the Fairlie Branch line closed in 1968, a group of people with a passion to preserve history for future generations set up the Pleasant Point Railway and Historical Society. All they had was a vision, a steam locomotive, and a vandalized railway station.

In 1970 a steam locomotive, Ab 699, was placed as a static exhibit on the only piece of track not lifted, about 50 meters, in front of the old Pleasant Point Railway Station. A museum was set up in the railway station.

We now have...
- Ab 699 Locomotive, fully operational
- The Model T Ford Railcar that runs daily during the summer
- Two kilometers of relaid track
- NZ’s only restored half birdcage carriage.
- D16, former freezing works shunting loco, restored to working condition.
- A huge shed at Keanes Crossing, built to house a workshop, rolling stock, and displays.

More attractions at Keanes Crossing...
- Vintage movie theatre showing old-time films.
- Printing machinery on display.
- Operating model railway and much more for you to enjoy.
