Train Hire

Our train is available for hire to meet your requirements:

  • Work or social club outings
  • End of year or other special functions
  • Wedding parties and wedding photos, etc
  • Filming and photo shoots

Depending on the weather and conditions underfoot, a photostop can be arranged on the outward journey. Why not tie in your hire with a visit to or a meal at the Waikari Hotel? Alternatively, finger food can be catered from the Waikari Tearooms, and our station at Waikari can be used as a venue. Please note that as this Station has no electricity or potable water supply; you will need supply your own hot water if needed. You will need to contact the Hotel or Tearooms directly, when planning your train hire, to see if they can meet your needs. Our station at Glenmark (Waipara) is also available as a venue, and has electricity, potable water, and water heating capability.
