Celebrate spring and travel with Steam Incorporated from Wellington to Carterton by heritage excursion train to attend the annual Daffodil Festival. A great day out!

The train will be hauled by one of our steam locomotives and we will be using our set of vintage carriages, some with open balcony end.

A diesel locomotive will be attached in front of our steam locomotive for the sectors through the 9km long Rimutaka Tunnel.

Located in the heart of the Wairarapa, Carterton’s popular Daffodil Festival offers an abundance of activities ranging from the famous Daffodil picking at Middlerun, markets along High and Holloway Streets, the Big Wai Art sale in the events Centre, and loads more family fun.

The market stalls will be set up in the town centre a short walk from the railway station. Shuttle buses will run from the station and town centre to the daffodil fields where you can pick your own daffodils for a small fee.

You can also board the train at Petone, Waterloo, or Upper Hutt.

All seating is reserved. Prior booking essential. Tickets will be emailed out two weeks before the trip.
