Glenbrook Vintage Railway, Auckland Reviews
If you have someone in the family who is just totally obsessed with steam trains then i cannot think of a better place than Glenbrook. The trains are very well maintained and the vintage carriages are breath taking. For only $20 an adult and $10 for kids 2+ years or $40pp for the first class treatment (offers first class carriage with cookies, cakes, scones, teas, coffees, juices and more) you will enjoy the beauty of the country side on a little piece of history. Well worth the visit.
This is pretty expensive for a family pass. And that a family of five and you're looking at over 200$ for less than an hour on a train. There are a few other rides, they also cost $5 per person like Bertie the bus, and Thomas with two carriages, that moves about 50m up and down the track. Cool if you happen to be in Waiuku, maybe not worth a specific day out trip from outside Auckland though.
A great experience! Keeping history alive. The Parlour Carriage is especially nice. Love the outdoor observation deck!
Ride a working vintage stream train. On the Thomas special days it's very busy. There aren't many onsite food options, so bring a picnic and be prepared to queue for everything else. The stream train ride is nice, but the Thomas fans are herded like cattle into standing carriages and go 100 meters forward and back for 10 minutes.
Experience the power of steam with a ride on this line from rural Glenbrook into Waiuku. The trains consist of carriges from the early 20th century hauled by a 100+ year old locomotive. There is an on-site refreshment room serving sandwiches and pies as well as hot and cold drinks. There is plenty of parking around the station area.
