Your adventure aboard The Kauai Plantation Railway begins when you enter our Train Depot Shop where you can purchase your tickets, and find unique “Kaua’i Made” products. Before boarding the Kauai Train spend some time strolling in the beautiful tropical gardens that surround the depot, and savor the tropical scents and warm Kauai sun.

When you here the sound of the train’s whistle, head on over to the platform and get ready for the conductors call of ” All Aboard.” Adventure and fun await you as you board Kauai’s Plantation Railway’s vintage custom built mahogany passenger cars pulled by a vintage 1948 General Electric electric-diesel locomotive. The sound of the train whistle and the wheels clanking on steel rails add to the nostalgic setting of the tour of beautiful & historic Kilohana Plantation.
