OETT Header 3rd Capture2

 is the founder of the Taieri Gorge Railway and is now the joint owner of the company with the Dunedin City Council. The Trust is an active participant in the operation of the Taieri Gorge Railway with its award winning volunteer members hosting passengers on the cruise ship excursion trains.

The Trust was formed in 1978 but its genesis goes back to the 1950's when the Otago Branch of the New Zealand Railway & Locomotive Society (NZRLS) began running excursion trains both into Central Otago and on other New Zealand Railway (NZR) lines out of Dunedin. The decision of NZR in 1976 to cease operating excursion trains led to the formation of the National Federation of Rail Societies and an agreement with NZR to allow operation of privately owned carriages on their tracks.
