Membership

Membership of Steam Incorporated is open to anyone who wishes to support the activities of the Society. We have a variety of voluntary activities to suit all people and you do not have to become physically involved at the site to belong. Donít let our name "Steam Incorporated" put you off, we also have diesels and a huge variety of other tasks that you can help us out with.

For those who wish to become physically active at the site, we can offer all sorts of things, ranging from gardening, cleaning, looking after the train, locomotives, buildings, right through to the more skilled tasks of engineering. Not only do our members look after the site, train and locomotives, but running a diverse society such as Steam Incorporated also requires many varied administrative and business skills and we are always looking for volunteers to help us with this sphere of things. The society also welcomes people who just want to become financial supporters by paying the annual subscription.

No matter whether you are young or old, male or female, we have something to do that will suit your interests or skills. Many good friendships have been gleaned from the camaraderie at Steam Incorporated, why not give us a go? Our main work day is on Saturday, but we even have a special work day on Thursdays where, amongst others, a group of senior members gather to keep active and enjoy the camaraderie. We are community spirited and have young and old, male and female, skilled and unskilled people all working together at Steam Incorporated.

Steam Incorporated also caters for younger people, who can choose from a number of projects to their liking. As well as helping us out, our teenage members are gleaning many different and valuable skills. You do not have to be skilled to help or just belong. We donít have many restrictions, but for safety reasons we do ask that children under the age of 15 years old be accompanied by a parent or guardian whilst working at our site.

As a members you receive early notice of any rail excursions and have the benefit of members discounts, where offered. You will also received the Societyís quarterly magazine "Steamline", which keeps members up to date with Society happenings, and other news of interest to members.

Two classes of membership are available. Full Members and Junior Members. Junior members are either under 18 years or in full time study. Junior Members do not have voting rights.

Want to see where we are, we can easily be reached by suburban train services from Wellington or Paraparaumu, or by road. Forty kilometres north of Wellington, our site is located on State Highway 1, and is immediately north of the Paekakariki railway station. 

We are usually open Monday to Saturday (except statuary holidays and days we are operating an excursion). Admission by donation.
