North Borneo steam locomotive day trip, Borneo

Enjoy the unique sights and sounds of local villages, paddy fields, mangrove jungle and pristine coastal beaches as you while away a leisurely day in comfort. Featuring the mid-century British "Vulcan" steam engine, the North Borneo railway is the last of a fleet of locomotives that have plied the tracks throughout Borneo since the 1900's. Built and operated to the highest international service standards, the train can accommodate up to 80 passengers and consists of five refurbished colonial style carriages with 16 passengers per carriage, one stylish observation deck and bar carriage and washroom facilities in each carriage.

The train departs on Wednesdays and Saturdays and leaves Kota Kinabalu around 10am, returning around 2pm. Lunch is included.
