e are the ACT division of the Australian Railway Heritage Society, also known as Canberra Railway Heritage. We exist to preserve, restore and operate heritage railway equipment for the enjoyment of young and old alike. The equipment we use has been saved in many cases from the scrapper’s torch and returned to service by a band of volunteers for future generations to learn from and enjoy. Founded in the late 1960′s, a small group of enthusiasts began to collect pieces of rolling-stock and other railway artifacts as they became available, and when they could afford to, from the then New South Wales Government Railways. They raised enough money to restore these carriages and steam engines and began to operate trains, mostly in the Canberra-Monaro district, for their own enjoyment as well as for the enjoyment of Canberra’s families, something we continue to do to the present day.
