Steam Incorporated hosting the public in July
The hugely popular Steam Incorporated will have the depot open to the public on the weekend of July 11-12.
The public will be able to join the volunteer crew Steam Incorporated for a fun-filled weekend with the family, from 10am to 3pm both days at the depot just off SH1 at Paekakariki. There will be plenty to see and do – both of the steam locomotives Ab 608 and Ja 1271 will be in steam giving rides to visitors, and the Da diesel-electric locomotives will be on display.
All sheds will be open for visitors to look around, and volunteers present to answer any questions you may have. Inspect progress on our heavy restoration projects, Ka 945 and Da 1471.
The days will include:
Jigger Rides - $2
Turn a Locomotive - $2
Workshop Tours - $5
Steam Loco Cab Rides - $10
Steam Loco Driver Experience - $20
