Wheelchair Access

The Weka Pass Railway aims to be a heritage attraction that everybody can enjoy


The Weka Pass Railway has, whenever possible, wheelchair access in one carriage.

Access is via a ramp that can be set up on your arrival by staff, for wheelchairs, walkers or the infirm.

If you wish to move from your wheelchair to one of our seats, we require no special booking. Book a ticket as usual.

If you wish to remain in your wheelchair, you need to make a booking for a wheelchair when you book your ticket, in addition to a ticket, as spaces are limited.


Both of our stations are wheelchair accessible.

The Glenmark Station has disability access parking very close to the platform, and accessible bathroom facilities. There is a 25 meter sloped pathway between the Waikari Station and the road. Unfortunately there are no accessable toilets at Waikari Station.

Regrettably, passengers confined to a wheelchair cannot disembark from the train during photo stops along the journey, as the access ramp can only be used at our two stations.
