We operate trains and workshop tours at Maymorn on the second Sunday of each month, 10am-4pm.
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.
Over the past few months we have been working on extending our mainline past the Maymorn Metlink station. The mainline heads through an 8 degree curve, and will pass through a right-hand turnout at the top of the crossing loop and press on further east in due course. The turnout is being assembled in our workshop yard. On completion the turnout will be relocated to the railhead.
