The Hawaiian Railway Society is a non-profit organization committed to saving, restoring and protecting Hawaii’s railroading history and operates this popular museum. Boasting the only active railway on Oʻahu, Hawaiian Railway Society Museum invites you to ride along a track of west Ewa while you learn more about the rich history and culture of railroading in the state.
Following the restoration of the 6.5 mile track along Renton Road, the Hawaiian Railway Society then restored both diesel and steam locomotives for the enjoyment of riders. Also enjoyed is Parlor Car 64, which was built entirely for Benjamin Dillingham, founder of Oahu Railway & Land Co. This impressive car features rustic yet luxurious features, and is added to the Hawaiian Railway train on the second Sunday of every month.
You can enjoy 90-min. train rides every Sat. and Sun., with departure times of 3 p.m. on Sat. and 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Sun. Rides are first come, first serve, and the museum recommends an early arrival time of 45 min. to an hour to purchase tickets.
