Experience the unique joy of traveling along a railway line in your own powered self-drive railway vehicle, called a RailCruiser.
The RailCruiser is a fully automated, state of the art petrol-electric four seat self-drive railway vehicle, with comfortable seats and unobstructed views. It is fitted with clear drop down waterproof sides.
Departing from Mamaku Railway Station travel 10km through a majestic 1000 year old native forest, past rolling pastures with views out over Lake Rotorua to Tarukenga Railway Station. After a short break at Tarukenga whilst the RailCruisers are turned, you return in your RailCruiser back to Mamaku.
Cruising along at 20km/hr, you can listen to the audio tour. This is the ultimate way to experience a railway.
