Moving Experiences

One of the four themed containers on the Exhibition Express was Moving Experiences.  This display focused on what our on board travellers would experience on one of our world-class services.

The Moving Experiences display provided an experiential journey for visitors as soon as they entered.  Those wishing to experience the Northern Explorer (Auckland to Wellington); the Interislander (Wellington to Picton); the Coastal Pacific (Picton to Christchurch); and the TranzAlpine (Christchurch to Greymouth) were able to take a virtual experience on board our services.

Sounds of seagulls, penguins, skiiers and such would play as you moved through the display.  Imagery of landscapes and local tourist adventures would show on screens complimented by three videos of the Northern Explorer, Coastal Pacific and TranzAlpine journeys.

One wall was dedicated to Interislander services which operate between Wellington and Picton.  Three iPads provided 360 footage of each of Interislander's fleet allowing visitors to go on board, visit each deck and see the views of the Sounds as if you were on board yourself.

Below the screens and shelves that were packed with local kiwiana, were train letters running along the walls for the young kids to play with.

Staff were on site to answer any questions about our KiwiRail Scenic Journeys or our Interislander ferry services.
