Day 1 North Borneo Railway (Lunch)


Morning, pick up from your hotel in Kota Kinabalu and transfer to the Railway station. Experience Borneo’s suburbs and countryside onboard one of the few functional steam train left in the world. The train is hauled by a British Vulcan steam locomotive, designed and built by the Vulcan Foundry in Newton-le-Willows, Lancashire, England in 1954 as part of the last order before the factory converted to diesel and electric locomotive construction.
The Vulcan 6-015, a 2-6-2 carrying a green livery with polished boiler bands and red edging to the running plate and tender frame is fuelled by burning wood to produce steam.
Travel through paddy fields, orchards, schools, mangrove jungles and coastal areas. Visit a Chinese temple and explore pre-war shops, local markets and see the locals go about their daily life.
As you make your way back to Kota Kinabalu, enjoy a tiffin lunch served on board the colonial style carriage. On arrival at Kota Kinabalu, transfer back to your hotel.
