The Otago Central Rail Trail Trust has been instrumental
in purchasing the old Hyde Railway Station. They plan to refurbish
the chattels and rolling stock. This project has been funded by
donations from DOC, the combined Lions Clubs of Central Otago and
people right across New Zealand. It has been reported that
some donations even
came in from overseas.
This will make a great rest stop on the trail no matter which way
you are travelling. There may be an exhibition space, a museum and
an information area. Community input is being sought on exactly how
the station can best be used.
Hopefully this great new space
will be ready for the upcoming season.
Time to get you bookings in now,
give us a call!
