FRONZ 2018 conference delegates made a visit to our railway for a train ride, workshop tour and lunch on Monday 4 June 2018, during their tour of heritage railway attractions in the Hutt Valley. Most heritage and tourist railways are FRONZ members, sending representatives to an annual conference to catch up on the latest advice and share their knowledge and experience.
