The Canterbury Railway Society and Ferrymead Railway would like to make a special thanks to the following for their major support:
The NZ Lotteries Grants Board – providing us with major funding for locomotive, carriage and building restoration, without their valuable contribution, we would not be able to achieve so many of our goals.
Solid Energy NZ Limited – For contributions to help offset operating costs of our steam locomotives.
The Rata Foundation (The Canterbury Community Trust) – Who have given the Society annual Grants to help with maintenance.
Westpac – Who have given the Society a grant to help with earthquake damage repairs.
Burnside Radiators Harewood
Porter Hire Harewood
We would also like to thank The Ferrymead Heritage Park for their contributions and support, each and every member of the Canterbury Railway Society for their contribution and the role they play in making the Society and Ferrymead Railway what it is to date. Special acknowledgement to the members who put in the long hours on open days and special event days, and the members who dedicate their time to the restoration and maintenance of the locomotives, rolling stock, track and buildings. And thanks also for those responsible for the day to day running of the society.
Thank you also to all the individuals and businesses who make donations and other contributions no matter how big or small, every bit counts and we acknowledge and appreciate it.
A huge thanks to the Alexander Turnbull Library for permission to display images from their archives and all those who have contributed images to the gallery and other places on this site, keep them coming and help us build a valuable archive for everyone to enjoy.
Thanks also to all the customers who support what we are doing and who make it all the more worth while to see the enjoyment they receive by riding the trains, hopefully some of you will like it so much as to become members someday.
