Fodor's Expert Review Fell Locomotive Museum
The tiny town of Featherston is worth a stop for the Fell Locomotive Museum. Along with photos, models, and memorabilia, it has the last remaining Fell locomotive in the world. Built in 1875 and expertly restored, the engine is one of only six that clawed their way up the notorious Rimutaka Incline. The museum is open to the public on weekends, but tours can be booked for any day of the week.
