The Remuera Railway Station is a “place of special and outstanding historical and cultural heritage significance and value”.
The Remuera Railway Station Preservation Trust (TRRSPT) was set up in 1994 to preserve the heritage and integrity of the historic Remuera Railway Station.
By 1994 the Station buildings had sunk into a state of neglect and disrepair, covered in graffiti, with broken glass, peeling paint, water leaks and vandalism. In such a condition that it was considered for demolition.
A Conservation Plan was prepared in 1992, and revised in 2015 (view Conservation Plan here).
Supported by grants, sponsors and volunteers the Trust undertook major restoration work on the exterior of the Station buildings. In acknowledgement of this the railway station was granted a restoration award in 2007 by the Rail Heritage Trust of New Zealand.
The interior, however, has not been repaired or restored. The interior was further
damaged in 2011 when platform was lifted and extended in preparation for electric trains, by Auckland Transport /Kiwi Rail.
In February 2019 Auckland Transport granted the Trust ‘a license to occupy premises at Remuera Train Station’, and an interior refurbishment plan is now in place.
TRRSPT’s Restoration Goal: "To restore the interior in line with conservation plan for community use, eg. meetings and displays on local railways, stations, trains, model railways, rail memorabilia."
Can you help?
We are actively seeking new trustees, ‘friends’, volunteers and sponsors to build a new community of support around the Station.
