The Weka Pass Railway is a North Canterbury heritage railway society, that own and operate a scenic railway line and vintage equipment through limestone scenery, for the education and enjoyment of all.
Initially, the railway runs across flat farmland and passes a large irrigation reservoir and vineyards, before climbing grades as steep as 1 in 50 as it winds through the cuttings in the Pass. One can only marvel at the achievements of the workers, who in the 1880’s, moved tons of clay and limestone by hand to form all the cuttings and large embankments.

Bookings are strongly recommended to secure your seat. If not marked as sold out on our website, a limited number of tickets may be available for purchase from our Glenmark Station ticket office or the train crew on the evening.

Bookings can be made on the website and are fully refundable in the event of a Covid-19 related cancellation.
