Departure is from Picton Railway Station, which is conveniently located across the road from the cruise ship shuttle drop off point.
The hour-long Steam Train journey takes you up the challenging and steep elevation out of Picton (1-in-37 slope), through the Para Wetlands, across the Wairau River into the Wairau Valley and through a sea of vineyards into Blenheim.
Disembark at Blenheim Station and explore Blenheim town centre at your leisure (shops, gourmet cafes and restaurants). Walks along the river are also recommended.
The Steam Train will then depart Blenheim for the return journey to Picton where you can spend more time at your leisure until you board the shuttle back to the cruise ship.
TOUR DURATION:  The tour duration is tailored for each cruise ship to maximize time spent enjoying Marlborough and to ensure a timeous return to Picton for your cruise ship departure.
The WWI Memorial steam locomotive was built in 1915 and later named the “Passchendaele”, in memory of the famous 1917 Battle of Passchendaele. 2017 is the centenary anniversary of the Battle of Passchendaele. The Steam Train consists of carriages from the same WW1 period.
