Our History

Learn about our history and future

The Glenbrook Vintage Railway was founded in 1970 to preserve, rebuild, and operate the old Waiuku Branch Railway between Glenbrook and Waiuku.

Over the years, our passionate volunteers fundraised to acquire locomotives and carriages from around the country, as well as cutting back the gorse that had overgrown the railway line using machetes. The fully working railway that is the Glenbrook Vintage Railway you see today is a testament to the vision, dedication, and hard work of these founding members.
