The New Zealand Railway and Locomotive Society Inc is a society of railway enthusiasts, based in Wellington. It was incorporated in 1958.[1]

The society archives are in the Thomas McGavin Building on Ava railway station's former goods yard in the Hutt Valley.[2] At one time an old railway carriage held at the Ngaio railway station was used.[3]


The society publishes a magazine, the New Zealand Railway Observer (ISSN 0028-8624), that was first published by the New Zealand Railway Correspondence Society on a Gestetner in 1944,[4] and a newsletter Turntable. The society publishes books on railway subjects. There are currently about 25 books available, as listed on the website. Most are about New Zealand railways, but there is a book Cane Trains about railways in Fiji.

Rolling stock

The society owns steam locomotives AB 608 and X 442.[5]
