Workshop update - Summer 2015/16

Since our last update on 7 December - Workshop floor gets funding boost - we have placed over 20 cubic metres of concrete floor in the workshop. The transformation to the workshop building is significant - its fantastic to have so much usable floor area.

Only one road of the shed will be fitted with rails at this stage, and the "road three" rail beams are being boarded over to provide a continuous floor for machine tools, work benches and storage areas.

The interior wall between the workshop and main shed was required to be insulated, and we have clad this with ColorSteel - most of it left overs from previous exterior cladding work.

Next steps with the workshop are to fabricate and fit a bi-folding train door, plus a pedestrian door, followed by interior linings.

Thanks are due again to recent grants from Cossie Club Upper Hutt and Rimutaka Trust, for funding towards completing our workshop.
