Fundraiser to restore steam train

SHARE

Oamaru Steam and Rail general manager Harry Andrew hopes Oamaruvians will get behind the company’s Father’s Day fundraiser.

The Father’s Day Special is taking place on September 7, the day the Taieri Gorge Railway train visits Oamaru. The Oamaru Steam and Rail will hire the train while it is stopped in town.

When the train arrives at 11.30, they are planning to use it to take a trip down to Herbert and hope many families in the community will get on board to celebrate Father’s Day.
