The Plains Railway is home to vintage Steam Locomotives K88, Ja1260 and A64, along with Diesel Railcar RM50. These provide rides on public open days along our 2.5km track - a portion was originally the Mount Somers Branch Line.

Our replica pioneer Museum Village houses hundreds of items from Mid-Canterbury's pioneering past - from a Chemist shop through to a Cottage. We have an extensive vintage machinery collection to view.
