Chartering a Carriage for a Day

During our normal Sunday and public holiday operating days (except on days the parlour car and/or the dining car are also operating), we have carriages available that can be attached to our normal services and which can be hired for the day for special functions. This is a very popular option for birthdays, staff functions, family picnics & gatherings, and Christmas parties. Your carriage remains attached to the normal services for the day (4 trips) and is for your exclusive use!


          50-seat Carriage

Our immaculate 37 and 50 seat wood-panelled carriages are available for hire, all dating from the early 1900's. The hire cost for these carriages is $500 including GST.


The Glenbrook Vintage railway can be hired in its entirety for your special event, whether it be a birthday party, staff picnic, Christmas party, product launch, anniversary, themed party, rally venue, school field trip etc.... This option is available all year 'round. For charter price and available options please contact our Charter Manager (contact details below).

Options include:
  • A 15km return trip through beautiful rural countryside on the vintage train to historic Waiuku, hauled by one of our steam locomotives, with time to visit our restoration and maintenance workshops en-route. (A vintage diesel locomotive option is also available). Photographic stops can be included in your train ride. Special trains such as goods trains or mixed trains can be arranged for photographic charters. The charter can be for one round trip or a number of trips on the day.
  • Full use of our Glenbrook station complex, which includes extensive off-road parking, large station building and verandah, wheelchair-accessible toilets, picnic area with picnic tables and childrens play equipment, and a large area for organised games, marquees, etc.
