Get closer to New Zealand's stunning scenery
It's as famous as the TranzAlpine itself, with many a New Zealand holiday anecdote including the line: "...and we went on a train where you could stand outside!"
But our unique outdoor viewing carriage isn't just a novelty. It is an amazing way to step out into the great outdoors and experience the environment first-hand. Feel the brisk winter air freshen your cheeks or the warm summer breeze ruffle your hair. Get wet in the rain or kissed by the sun. You can get a true outdoor experience simply by stepping outside into the TranzAlpine Open-air Carriage.
The TranzAlpine Open-air Carriage has always been the perfect place for capturing unobstructed views of New Zealand's world-famous scenery on camera. With our redesigned carriages, it is now much easier to get ready, get steady, and shoot!
