A&G Price Drawings – a further batch of drawings are now available.
The lastest batch scanned are from the third cabinet and are high-resolution scans of the rail-relevant tracings . These cover the period from the mid-1940s to the mid-1950s and include surviving drawings of the V-type steam lokey, the RNZAF 87hp petrol locos, the 3ft-gauge Remutaka tunnel construction diesel locos and the first of Price’s second-generation shunting tractors, among others. There are also a number of logging and mining drawings.
Full details of charges and a list of all drawings can be found in the downloadable PDF files under the Archives tab on the Society’s website. The plans are in cabinets and as they are scanned and become available we will add further PDF files.
These drawings are fragile and many are in poor condition. They are not stored at the Society’s archive premises at Ava. Therefore it is generally not possible for researchers to access the originals.
