WMR Restoration progress

During the restoration of our Wellington & Manawatu (WMR) carriages we have had much-appreciated help from Cover Me Ltd. of Upper Hutt, dZine Signs Ltd. of Upper Hutt and the men of the Upper Hutt Men’s Shed.
Although there is still a fair bit of work to do on WMR 48, the car body is now fully sign written on the outside. The seats made by the Men’s Shed and the upholstery of padded leather is now installed.
