Help support Weka Pass Railway build a shed so we can better preserve New Zealand's railway heritage.
The Weka Pass Railway has a 40 year history of railway restoration in the North Canterbury community. We have restored numerous passenger carriages and freight wagons that need a safe place to be stored away from the elements. Despite the efforts of our volunteers the condition of these carriages deteriorates without adequate protection.
We have recently received a generous donation of a new carriage storage shed, but we need further support to get the job done. We are raising funds to provide essential services to get the new shed up and running.
Funds raised will be used to fit out the shed with electrical and water supply, drainage, lighting and crucially a fire detection system. If the campaign target is exceeded funds will be used to purchase materials used in further carriage restoration work.
The Weka Pass Railway operates and maintains the railway from Waipara to Waikari in North Canterbury for the enjoyment, education and transport of society members and the public.
Funds raised will be used in the fit out of the shed. This includes water supply, drainage, electrical supply, internal wiring, lighting and fire detection.
Thanks for your kind support Geoff!
