There are two scenic train journeys available from Christchurch.
Due to extensive damage to the track between Kaikoura and Blenheim, the Coastal Pacific train has been suspended for the remainder of the 2016/17 season. See Scenic Journey Travel News for full information.
Both train journeys depart daily with the Coastal Pacific running only in Summer.
There are no suburban commuter passenger train services in Christchurch.
