Overview

Would you like a dash of awe to your active afternoon Forgotten World 5 Tunnel RailCart Tour adventure in New Zealand? Then board a two-person RailCart for a 40km return trip from the Taumarunui end of the line. Sit back on the comfortable RailCart and put pedal to metal as you journey back in time while riding through storied tunnels and over historic bridges.

Admire the Forgotten World Railway’s first 20kms as it unfurls, then stop for hot soup and a bun before returning to where you started. Ride through five tunnels including the longest (1.5km long) and three magnificently hand-made brick lined tunnels. You will be surrounded by native bush, farms and beautiful hill country as you pedal along. Catch the 10AM tour leaving Taumarunui and return by 2.30PM.

What to bring:

  • In this region the weather is changeable and it’s best to prepare for all conditions no matter the season. 
  • Layered clothing with a good wind/rain jacket or shell is ideal. The RailCarts have plastic side-curtains that provide good rain protection. 
  • It can be very cool in the tunnels even on the hotest days.

We suggest the following should be taken with you on the RailCart:

  • Sunglasses, Camera, Binoculars
  • Water and extra snacks if required
  • Any personal medications required - especially allergy medications.  This is a rural environment with insects and pollens.
  • Warm thermal/merino clothing, including hat, scarf and gloves
  • Sturdy footwear (no jandals) with warm socks
  • Warm windproof jacket with hood even in fine weather
  • 100% Rainproof coat and over-trousers if rain is predicted
