Expressions of Interest

Proposals are being requested to identify and evaluate options for sustainable utilisation of Dunedin Railways Limited’s (DRL) assets. 

DRL operated tourist and charter train services utilising the Taieri Gorge railway line and the New Zealand rail network for many years. The company entered hibernation mode on 1 July 2020.  Dunedin City Council has asked for options for potential future use of DRL’s assets to be identified and evaluated, so Council can make decisions on the future of the company and its assets. 

Dunedin City Holdings Limited as owner of DRL is seeking feedback from interested parties regarding a viable use or acquisitions of DRL assets.  Key assets include the Taieri Gorge Line (DRL owns the track, sleepers and all other railway infrastructure on the line), Rolling Stock and property in Middlemarch.
