Many passengers on the Kinston Flyer at the opening gala day for 2012-2013 took the opportunity to become ‘Friends of the Flyer’, which status entitles holders to a 50% discount on up to 10 regular fares, and complimentary tea and coffee on board the train.   

The $65 card is fully transferrable to friends and families and has no expiry date. All proceeds go towards the Flyer’s ongoing restoration.  

Kingston Flyer owner David Bryce said he was delighted with the uptake on the Friends’ offer.   “It’s a great way for all New Zealanders to get involved in restoring a slice of history and heritage and to offset some of our substantial on-going maintenance and repairs in the long-term,” he said.   “Anyone can become a ‘Friend’, even if they aren’t able to get down to ride the train. We’d still very much appreciate and value that support.”  

The Kingston Flyer operates two trips daily until the end of April and is also available for private charter and catering.   For more information and to purchase a ‘Friends of the Flyer’ card and reserve tickets for the 2012/13 season go to
