A small army of volunteers keep this award-winning charitable group - and all of its equipment - running. They are all working to preserve New Zealand's railway history and the history of the South Canterbury area.
If you're not from the area and don't know where to find us you can pinpoint us here. And if your visit doesn't co-incide with a running day you can arrange a special visit, or simply drop by most Saturdays or Wednesdays, when the team are on site.
150 years of rail in New Zealand
Pleasant Point joined the celebrations of 150 years of rail in New Zealand, with a special event on July 20 and 21.
Two steam engines pulled trains throughout the weekend. Joining it, the Model T Ford railcar, RM4 gave rides on the Saturday, with a motorised track jigger and trolley giving rides on the Sunday.
It turned out to be a bigger event than we ever could have envisaged. Thank you to everyone who came to visit - that's more than 1100 of you (almost the entire population of the township!).
TV One even flew a journalist down from Auckland to film the Saturday's running for Seven Sharp. You can see the footage here
