The railcar is making a special trip from Dunedin for the heritage farming open day at Totara.
The open day at Totara, one of the first New Zealand farms to run Angus cattle, would feature heritage farm animal breeds, traditional crafts, food and demonstrations of working machinery, New Zealand Historic Places Trust Totara property manager Anne Sutherland said.
The Dunedin Silver Fern had 31 bookings for the trip to Oamaru on Sunday, Taieri Gorge Railway chief operating officer Murray Bond said.
Early bookings were recommended for the remaining seats on the railcar.
Totara was a request stop for the mixed ''slow'' trains with goods wagons and passenger carriages that ran between Dunedin, Palmerston and Oamaru up to the early 1950s.
The railcar will stop as required for booked passengers to and from Palmerston and other towns along the line.
Trains stopped at Totara from 1878, when the line was completed north from Dunedin.
