Pleasant Point Rail Experience

The Pleasant Point Museum and Railway is a heritage railway located in the small country town of Pleasant Point in southern Canterbury.

Its main terminal is located at Pleasant Point station near Timaru. The station was an important stop on the former Fairlie Branch line. Today there is 2km of track along the formation of the retired line. Volunteers keep the locomotives, carriages, and a railcar in top order.

Throughout the year you will hear a whistle or a horn as trainloads of passengers from around the world ride the rails at Pleasant Point, a picturesque spot between the mountains and the sea.
