Welcome

We are the Napier-Gisborne Railway Shortline Establishment Group.

Welcome to the official Napier to Gisborne Shortline Railway Website.
The Napier-Gisborne Railway new regional railway operation will provide a vital role in supporting State Highway 2 ensuring major freight increases from forestry and containerised export produce crops can be readily handled for the benefit of the Hawke’s Bay and East Coast communities including improving safety of road users.

The Napier-Gisborne Railway will provide tourism benefits from Gisborne City Vintage Rail and Napier based Mainline Steam, Cruise ship and other rail excursions.
