The seating on board the Tranz Alpine is arranged in a 4 seat with an aisle down the middle configuration. These can either be as a table or in forward-facing pairs. The large panoramic windows make this a great way to experience the dramatic landscape
There is a café carriage on board, serving a range of light meals, drinks (both soft drinks and alcoholic drinks), and snacks. Each carriage has toilet facilities on board and a fantastic viewing carriage to immerse yourself in the landscape.
This is a regular train service which can be used to hop on and hop off. The train is daily, leaving Christchurch at 8:15 am, stopping in Greymouth for 1 hour before departing again at 2:05 pm and arriving back at Christchurch at 6:31 pm. The TranzAlpine does not run on Christmas day.
