This is the way to travel! Enjoy the complimentary High Tea refreshments and take in the sights and sounds of our restored New Zealand Railways Steam Locomotive as you chuff through the countryside...
We travelled the globe, taking inspiration from lounge and observation carriages from all of the famous railways around the world to design and craft our First Class Parlour Carriage.
You will board the First Class carriage at the head of the train through the velvet-roped walkway. Your host will welcome you aboard and as you settle in for the journey, you will notice the immaculately restored wooden panelling and premium decor. Relax in the comfortable leather seating, or step out onto the large observation deck for an up close look at the steam engine. On the journey to Waiuku, you will have a close up view of the steam engine working, and on the return trip back to Glenbrook you will have an unrestricted full 180-degree view of the track as it disappears into the distance.
Included in your fare are complimentary refreshments in 'high-tea' style. These platters will be served at your seat to ensure you can continue to feast upon the view and ambience of travelling behind a steam train. Also included are complimentary tea and coffee, as well as cold non-alcoholic drinks. A perfect morning or afternoon tea in relaxing and romantic surroundings!
There's no better way to ride the rails than in the comfort of our First Class Parlour Carriage.
