There are major changes for the Auckland-Wellington Overlander train service.
KiwiRail has announced its providing new scenic carriages for the trip which will run just three times a week from Auckland and Wellington.
And it will also be a shorter service with fewer stops.
The Overlander currently runs a daily service during summer months and three days a week during winter, and some carriages are 60-years-old.
KiwiRail's general manager of Passenger Services, Deborah Hume, says introducing new scenic carriages is the key to revitalising the North Island service.
The new service will begin operation on Monday June 25.
