FT 5: Whangarei Heritage Railway

The railway's main line is about 0.9km long. It extends from Millington Bush at the end of the line to Museum station at the top of the line. It has an intermediate station at Milnes. The main station is at the Hikurangi station. There is a fairly large loco shed and workshop near to the station.

An extension about 0.8km long has been laid from a new platform at Millington Bush through the lower bush to a terminus next to Maunu Road in the parking paddock. This section will eventually be operated by the tram but other trains will be able to use the line.

All members are voluntary and give a lot of their time to operate and maintain the railway. About 5000 hours of voluntary labour per year goes into the operation and maintenance of the railway.

The railway has been operated throughout its existence by volunteers.
