THE JOURNEY

Join us on a majestic steam train ride from a bygone era.

The WWI Memorial steam locomotive was built in 1915 and later named the “Passchendaele”, in memory of the famous 1917 Battle of Passchendaele. 2017 is the centenary anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. The Steam Train consists of carriages from the same WW1 period.

Departure is from Picton Railway Station, then enjoy the hour-long Steam Train journey  up the challenging and steep elevation out of Picton (1-in-37 slope), through the Para Wetlands, across the Wairau River into the Wairau Valley and through a sea of vineyards into Blenheim. Continue from Blenheim along the Dashwood Pass and the picturesque Awatere Valley, before crossing the historic Awatere River Bridge into Seddon. Return back to Blenheim and spend the afternoon exploring Blenheim town centre at your leisure (shops, gourmet cafes and restaurants). Train returns to Picton.
