Thank you we have made it to $15000 so have confirmed the contract and hope to take over within two weeks.
We have raised substantial funds already in the hope that we can keep the station on site and open it to view by Rail Trail users. We just need a little bit more - well $15000 more to make it a reality and to keep the RAIL in Otago Central Rail Trail
Please Note: Pledges on this page are in addition to $1,535 pledged on our main OCRT page for the Hyde Station Project

THANK YOU -WE HAVE MADE IT 29 June 2016
We are thrilled with the many generous donations that have come in. And very humbled to get the support. This afternoon we have been able to confirm the contract and we hope to take ownership within a matter of days. Work will begin almost immediately to get the buildings open and to do some maintenance on the wagons. Thank you for making it possible.
