Over the weekend of 9 - 10 March 2019 we loaded six ballast wagons, getting ready for track work planned over the Autumn and Winter months.

We're planning to upgrade our 'road 4' track alongside the rail vehicle shed, with a view to its increased use - placing vehicles into the workshop shed, and for our regular monthly operating days.

The interior of our rail vehicle shed has been transformed over the past couple of months, with hard fill compacted into place and concrete floors laid. Once completed visitors to our railway will be able to access and view all the rail vehicles in our collection.

We're grateful for funding from Pelorus Trust, Cossie Club Upper Hutt, supporting the effort put in by Trust members.

During July and August 2018 we have concentrated on finishing internal lining for our workshop shed. A big thanks to Rimutaka Trust for funding a final order of ColorSteel cladding and fastenings to fit rails through the workshop floor.

Another ballast wagon has been repaired and painted, bringing the number that have been restored to six.
