Get Involved

With your help, we can continue to celebrate and preserve Palmerston’s railway heritage.

The restoration of the Palmerston Railway Station and rail yard by a dedicated group of volunteers, with local support, is a continuing project which began in 1999 with the restoration of the station.

Future projects, as funds and resources become available, include the acquisition of rolling stock, railway memorabilia, resources for genealogy research, and a future cross-generation education centre.


Hereโ€™s how you can help.
