The Pioneer Express was built by a local engineer based on the Barclay shunting engine which would be similar to those used in Stratford in the 1920’s.

It circuits the village on a 24” gauge railway complete with authentic Steam ‘sounds’. The ‘Express’ can carry 20 children and departs from the refurbished Opunake L19251 Railway Station.
