From the organisers of Wellington's wizard-themed train ride comes another interactive experience aboard a locomotive. Light the Night is the combination of vintage train journey and winter night market along the Kāpiti Coast.

The event on Saturday, 1 August will see up to 1500 passengers travel on return journeys from Paraparaumu to Ōtaki on an illuminated heritage steam train to the first night market at Ōtaki Yard.

On Track Events founder Sarah Ferguson says, "We believe this may be the first time a steam train has been illuminated and run on the main trunk line in New Zealand. Steam trains have been missing from the rail in the Wellington Region for nearly a year and we are thrilled to mark their return in a special way and support the wonderful people who are keeping New Zealand rail history alive."

There will be three different train journeys throughout the evening with the first train departing from Paraparaumu at 4pm for Ōtaki where guests will have an hour and a half to enjoy the hospitality of local vendors and artisans. The final departure from Ōtaki to Paraparaumu will be 9pm.

Tickets go on sale 7 July, including an entire VIP carriage for up to 25 passengers.
