Come out on Monday 27th October (Labour Weekend Monday) for a fantastic day of steam train action featuring Ab 608 "Passchendaele" from Wellington!

The highlight will be steam locomotive 'Ab' 608 "Passchendaele" from Steam Incorporated visiting us whilst operating their Heartland Rail Tour train. Ab 608 "Passchendaele" will be operating the 5 return trips over our 8km railway during this day. At some point during the day our Ww 644 steam locomotive will couple up to Ab 608, and they will then perform 'double-heading' specials. This is a very unique experience, and should not be missed!

Ab 608 "Passchendaele" has just undergone a massive restoration by the team at Steam Incorporated near Wellington. She has returned to steam, and mainline running this year so it is a massive honour to have this special locomotive visit our railway. This locomotive is very unique in that it is the World War One memorial locomotive from the New Zealand Government Railways.

A special commemorative service will be held at Glenbrook Station on Monday morning prior to the first scheduled train departure. This will feature a display of World War One and other military equipment and personal.

Other attractions of the day will be the display of classic cars and vintage tractors. Other extra entertainment will also be on offer for everyone. Again, another feature of the day will be the fantastic display of heritage locomotives at our Pukeoware Depot - this will include A 423, Wab 800, J 1234, and much more.

The Glenbrook Vintage Railway is also on Facebook. So start following us on Facebook now for regular updates and information on this fantastic weekend. Also, please share the page with all your friends and family and spread the word around as much as you can. More details will also be added to our website shortly.
