Our open days

Both steam trains and the Model T Ford railcar operate on days throughout the year. Some running days are special events including Steam & Crafts at Labour Weekend, Kiwi the Engine and Friends at Easter and the Get to the Point street fair on the first Saturday in November.

At times Model T Ford railcar runs on its own, with the driver giving a special 45-minute conducted tour around the site. Railcar-only days are listed separately from the main running day timetable.


Family: $35
Adult: $12
Children: $6
(​As of December 26, 2018)

Members receive free entry.

Between these dates, the Model T Railcar leaves Pleasant Point station daily at: 11am, 12noon, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm.
