Wettington and Mahawatu Rwy Version 3 work comences
The Wettington and Mahawatu Railway Company has reformed and work has commenced on the Wettington and Mahawatu Railway Mark 3. I'll call it Version 3. Version 2.5 doesn't do justice to how it will be reworked, with reverse loop, double track main, steaming track, turntable, and even a rack railway.
The Railway is still fully equipped, the train shed was still there, and the big green board (see photos) was stored away. The right of way still exists so work is progressing quickly. The Railway will rise again bigger and better than before, with better drinking ... er... observation areas. Hopefully by the end of Winter trains will be running in some limited form.
