Keywords:RailCruising is the new tourist activity that allows people just like you the ability to travel along railway lines in your own powered self-drive, 4-seat railway vehicle called the RailCruiser.

Groups of RailCruisers spaced about 300 metres apart, travel together like a virtual train in one direction from Mamaku Railway Station to Tarukenga. They are then turned to head back to Mamaku.
Cruising along at 20km/hr, you can listen to the audio tour and discover a unique piece of New Zealand railway history. This is the ultimate way to experience a railway.
The RailCruiser
The RailCruiser V3000 is the worlds first fully automated, state of the art petrol-electric four seat self-drive hybrid rail vehicle. The RailCruiser has comfortable seats with unobstructed views, is fitted with clear drop down waterproof sides and comes with onboard heating.

In addition to being the departure point for the Rotorua Explorer the Rotorua Railway Station will also be the departure point for another railway first for New Zealand - RailBiking. Operating on the hour will be a 4 seat pedal powered RailBike excursions to Ngongotaha and return, designed for those who enjoy a more active experience.
