A set of patterns have been made for our historic Gumdigger carriage A 255, built at Addington Workshops, Christchurch in 1884.

Number, class and smoking plate patterns have been fashioned from MDF material, sealed and painted, ready for casting in brass. A big thanks to Clive Davis, project manager for the A 255 carriage rebuild, for locating the drawings and commissioning the work.
