The Ferrymead Railway and the Canterbury Railway Society trace their heritage back to the 1940s when the New Zealand Railway and Locomotive Society was formed.

Located in Christchurch, the Society is a non-profit organisation that carries out a range of activities, including the operation of the Ferrymead Railway, the preservation of locomotives, rolling stock, buildings and other railway equipment.

We need donations to help us protect our items along with developing our Archive and Library collections.
