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.

ABOUT US

In 1967, New Zealand Government Railways announced the Fairlie branch line was to close, after 93 years of service to Pleasant Point and 84 years of service to the Mackenzie Country, the Fairlie Flyer was no more. The line had been losing $43,000 a year and like many other lines around the country, could not compete against road transport.

In 1970 the locals of Pleasant Point got together to preserve history for future generations. forming the Pleasant Point Railway and Historical Society. Since then we have collected much local and railway history that is on display for all to see on our opendays.  Nowadays we have become a multi-award-winning, world-renowned attraction.
