Waimea Plains Railway Trust was established in 1998 to restore and recreate a small part of the historic, once privately owned Waimea Plains Railway, which opened in 1880 and operated from Gore to Elbow (Lumsden).

K92 on the 'Sellars' Turntable at a Dunedin location, close to Rattray Street possibly 1880.
This particular turntable was relocated to Heriot and used there from 1910 to 1978. After being sold to a local farmer it was found and purchased by the Trust in 2002.
The Turntable has been relocated and will continue to be used by K92 at Waimea Plains Railway, Mandeville.
