The Glenbrook Vintage Railway is in crisis.

We are facing the most challenging and desperate times in our history. COVID-19 has forced our railway to close its doors, causing us to lose all income and threatening the future of essential staff who enable our volunteers and operation. GVR was saved and rebuilt to serve the people and recreate history. Over the past 50 years we’ve brought joy and excitement to over 1.5 million people, and we have continued growing and expanding to contributing over $1 million to the New Zealand economy last year alone. With the challenge we are now facing, we need your support more than ever.

Please donate now and save our iconic railway for future generations!
