The Marlborough Flyer has been listed in the Top 10 of the prestigious publication, The Telegraph, in the “Best Train Journeys in Australasia 2018”

An excerpt from the article:

“One of New Zealand’s most scenic lines on South Island heads south from the ferry and cruise ship terminal at Picton, and a new steam-hauled service began in December 2017 over the 19 miles (30km) to Blenheim. Set up to serve the cruise ship market, the train uses historic carriages and a 1915-built locomotive to reach Blenheim for wine tours and the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre. This contains the collection of First World War aircraft set up by Lord of the Rings trilogy director Sir Peter Jackson as well as a Second World War collection with the only flyable Avro Anson and a Griffon-powered Spitfire.”
