If you are interested in preserving a piece of New Zealand railway heritage for the benefit of present and future generations or have visited the Glenbrook Vintage Railway (GVR) and empathise with our aims and objectives and appreciate the development to date then perhaps you should consider donating to us to help further preserve and restore our unique railway history.
Donations may be in the form of Financial, Artefacts and Memorabilia or selected Tools and Equipment.
The donation will be applied towards the task of preserving and restoring those historic buildings, structures, track, locomotives and rolling stock of the GVR.

As an alternative you may elect to mail your cheque, with your reply address, payable to either
The Glenbrook Vintage Railway Charitable Trust Board

P O Box 13684
Every donation received will be acknowledged and as both The Glenbrook Vintage Railway and The Railway Enthusiasts Society Inc are registered charities under the Charities Act 2005 your financial donation would be eligible for a tax rebate.
The Railway Enthusiasts Societies clubrooms, the former historic Onehunga railway station, as well as being our administration centre hold an extensive collection of railway publications, artefacts and memorabilia. The clubrooms museum is open to the public between the hours of 9.00am to noon six days a week, Monday to Saturday, when administrative staff are available to welcome you.
We are always seeking historic items and artefacts with an NZ railway context and encourage individuals and groups who have such items to consider donating them to us. If not immediately wishing to part with these items then you may consider a bequest of a future gift to the Society.
Tools and Equipment Donations
Selected tools, equipment and materials would also assist and be applied to the many restorative projects required to maintain and improve the railway infrastructure. To determine the suitability of such items in the first instance please contact our workshop manager Mr John St Julian.
