‘The Stocker Preston Express’ Jetty Train is powered by renewable energy – there are 30 solar panels on it’s roof which supply enough power to charge it’s batteries for 4 days! Using solar power saves 1700L of fuel per year and supplies enough power for the Jetty to be carbon positive.
Passengers can enjoy carriages with six seats so families can sit together, accessible carriages for wheelchairs and walkers, a warm sheltered ride with secure see-through blinds and an audio tour with added commentary from our friendly train drivers.
From glimpses of dolphins frolicking to spotting local fishermen snaring their catch of the day, the Jetty Train trip promises to deliver something for everyone.
Did you know that the Jetty Train was the red train that inspired Japanese Director Hayao Miyazaki to create the film Spirited Away which has become a worldwide phenomenon!
Family passes are now available for you to enjoy one of only two solar-powered trains in the world which travel over the ocean!
The Jetty Train is able to transport one wheelchair per trip. Prams, pushers and some walkers can be stored within the carriage compartments. Please advise our friendly bookings staff if this service is required.
