The Lumsden Heritage Trust was formed in November 2013[1] to preserve the past, promote the future and provide an attraction for visitors.[2] The trust has two ex-AFFCO locomotives that were formerly preserved by the Goldfields Railway,[3][4] the chassis of P 60,[5] ex-NZR wagons that were formerly preserved by the Ohai Railway Board Heritage Trust, a railway station including a crane next to it[6] and a jail from the Lumsden camping grounds.[2] The trust is also planning to recover two V class locomotives from the Branxholme Locomotive Dump in the Oreti River[7] and to relocate the original Anglican All Saints wooden church to re-purpose it as a regional war memorial museum and to host some of the events being planned to commemorate World War I.[8]
