Christmas gift for a lover of steam trains Take a nostalgic 12 km trip back in time through beautiful rural countryside, aboard a lovingly restored vintage steam train.. Board the train at bustling Glenbrook Station after inspecting the steam engine (the driver will be happy to answer any questions) and settle into the immaculate wood panelled carriages. The friendly guard in vintage uniform will clip your ticket as you listen to the panting and whistling of the steam locomotive. Smell that special aroma of the coal smoke and experience the thrill and excitement of travel by steam train. There is a shady picnic area and playground adjacent to the station so take a picnic or purchase refreshments from the café. The railway now goes to Victoria Avenue, Waiuku which is short walk to the Waiuku township. You can leave the train to visit historic Waiuku, have lunch, visit a café or just have a look around then catch a later train back to Glenbrook Station. Another option is to purchase a day pass and ride the train for as many times as you like during the day.
