$290 of $6,000 goal
Given by 5 generous donors in around 6 months

The Trust has purchased 1947 built Ohai Railway Board No.1. The Trust is therefore undertaking a fundraising appeal to fund the restoration


Once returned to operation this this locomotive will provide the Trust with a level of redundancy when major work is required on Tr189 as well as forming a key role in future railway construction activities and shunting work at Maymorn.
