Sunday, 12 November 2017
This morning the majestic Marlborough Flyer steam train arrived on the InterIslander Ferry.
The freshly painted black locomotive and red carriages were shunted off the ferry to curious gazes from tourists and other onlookers.
The Marlborough Flyer’s inaugural journey is on 1 December 2017 and if seeing is believing…the Marlborough Flyer is here.
The Marlborough Flyer will focus on enhancing the visitor experience on cruise ship days, however on selected Sundays every month, from December 2017 to March 2018, there will also be “Super Sunday Specials”. These are special days which allow Marlburians and other Kiwis to enjoy The Marlborough Flyer experience with friends and family at a special discounted rate. The discounted “Super Sunday” rate has been made possible due to the support of the local sponsors and partners.
The aim is to make the experience as accessible as possible to locals, and in doing so create “My Marlborough Flyer” brand ambassadors in the region.
Several businesses have identified value in being associated with The Marlborough Flyer – credited for this are headline sponsor Port Marlborough and the carriage sponsors – Saint Clair Family Estate, The Ned of Marisco Vineyards, Lawson’s Dry Hills, Peter Ray Homes and Harcourts Marlborough.
