Heritage Railway Project

The Rimutaka Incline Railway Heritage Trust aims to reinstate and operate a world-class heritage railway between Wellington and the Wairarapa. The railway has the potential to be a unique tourist attraction for Wellington and New Zealand, and a major contributor to the regional economy.

The restoration of carriage A 1328 has continued apace over summer, boosted by the donation of a complete set of replacement window lights. Once the windows have been fitted there are just a few key tasks to complete, including fitting a set of seats, further mechanical and commissioning checks. The Trust plans to have the carriage in operation at its regular monthly Operating Days in mid-2022.

Grateful thanks to:
