This year marks 25 years since the Paekakariki Station Precinct Trust was formed by the local community to save the Railway Station, and 2020 will be 25 years that the Station Museum has been officially operating. We were one of the first museums to operate on the coast.
To mark the occasion Michael O’Leary has produced a book which outlines the history of the Station, the Trust and the Museum. It’s full of interesting articles and photographs taken over the years about the station and Railways in general.
This book has been produced with the assistance of a Grant from the Paekakariki Community Board.
Copies are available from Paper Plus in Coastlands Mall, Petticoat Junction & Kakariki Bookshop @ the Railway Station.
Cost $ 15 - All proceeds go towards the running costs of keeping the Museum open.
Over the years we are grateful for the support we have received from Lotto NZ, Kapiti Coast District Council, Rail Heritage NZ, KiwiRail, Steam Incorporated, Metlink – Greater Wellington Regional Council and the Paekakariki Community in general.

Councillors will vote on the future of the Gateway at the full February Council meeting. In the absence of NO community consultation a group have put together a petition to STOP the Kapiti Gateway Project and the huge associated costs with this ill-conceived project. The petition will be presented at the February Council meeting. Please sign, share and spread the word.
