The formation of the Otago Central Rail Trail Trust (OCRT Trust) in 1994 was initiated by the Department of Conservation (DOC) for the purpose of attracting external funding for the transformation of the original Otago Central rail line to a “Rail Trail”. Trustees were selected to represent local businesses and communities along the trail and subsequently their activities have contributed several million dollars towards the initial development and later enhancements.

The Trail now contributes more than $12 million to the local economy annually, continuing to create business opportunities and revitalising small communities.

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.

We will need funding for the ongoing improvements at the station so if you want to assist all donations appreciated

My wife and I rode the Otago RT two years ago last March. My wife suffered a significant back injury near Wedderburn Ken Gillespie recovered us and our bikes from the trail and transported us to the Ranfurly Hospital where my wife was treated immediately by the local doctor and hospital staff. We very much appreciated the welfare support and genuine kindness given to us during this difficult time. My wife did get back on her bike and completed the ride one day later. A big thankyou to Ken and the staff at the Ranfurly hospital. Please let them know that their generosity is very much appreciated by my wife and I, and our Rail Trail group from Bendigo, Australia.
