About SteamRail Wanganui

SteamRail Wanganui Incorporated was formed some 21 years ago with the main purpose of preserving the Wanganui Turntableand any future Railway memorabilia. Until the late 1980’s Wanganui was a large employer of Railway personal, with the EastTownWorkshops, Plant Zone at Aramoho, the Railway Station, the Goods Sheds, and the Locomotive Depot all in Taupo Quay, with a Training School in the later years. Many apprentices were put through these facilities along with a large variety of trades.

The group holds its meetings on the 4th Wednesday of every month, where a variety of programmes are held.
