Welcome to the Marlborough Flyer

The Marlborough Flyer is a heritage steam train from a majestic bygone era.

Join us to experience a heritage steam journey between Picton and Blenheim. Travelling on the historic World War I Memorial Locomotive, Passchendaele (1915), your journey through Marlborough takes you to Blenheim, where you can explore and be spoilt for choice sampling the regions’ world-famous wines and cuisine.
