TranzAlpine Scenic Plus Service Launched

Great Journeys New Zealand has launched a brand new purpose-built carriage designed to enhance every aspect of your journey. As a visitor, or manuhiri, you are invited to immerse yourself in a full sensory experience, surrounded by a host of impressive new features.

Launching on the TranzAlpine train journey in May 2024, the carriage provides Scenic Plus Service passengers with a refined rail experience. It’s more than just a way to travel; it’s a way to connect deeply with the essence of New Zealand’s breathtaking landscapes, rich stories, and distinctive flavours.

The carriage’s theme and design depict a ‘coiling bird,’ representative of our Manuhiri.

Every detail of the carriage's stylishly designed interior has been thoughtfully crafted to enrich your travel experience. From the new, comfortable seating configurations that invite relaxation to the large panoramic windows offering unobstructed views, this innovative carriage truly adds an extra layer of luxury to our world-class rail service.
