Heritage Park Railway has been operating since 1995 and is a family owned and operated business. After several years of planning and construction the railway and surrounding parkland including play equipment and BBQ facilities were finally opened for the public on Sunday 5th of November 1995. With much fanfare and excitement the official cutting of the ribbon was performed by Councillor John Crowther and ably assisted by Civic Design Committee Chairman Ron Hepburn also a rail fan. The railway started out using a diesel outline locomotive (45 class) called “Katie” and a steam engine called “Ivor”, after approximately 3 years “Ivor” was retired and a new diesel outline locomotive (81 class) called “Bart” was built and run. It was then sold and a new engine was built in the shape of an XPT called “Toby” It is now “Katie” and “Toby” that take turns at taking passengers for a ride around the park for 2 laps.
