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.
Hi Neighbourly folk, this one should not be to hard.
A woman whose car was spun around by the wind twice on the Remutaka Hill Rd said the State Highway 2 route was too dangerous and should have been closed on Tuesday.
Gusts of up to 135 kmh blasted the summit of the road connecting Upper Hutt and South Wairarapa making for a hairy crossing for many motorists on Tuesday.
Waka Kotahi issued a warning on Tuesday afternoon via Twitter saying it might close the road at short notice due to high winds, but it remained open.
Regional transport systems manager Mark Owen said they were monitoring conditions on the hill, but the wind did not reach their threshold of consistently reaching gust speeds of over 140 kmh over at least a period of half an hour, which would trigger a closure.
