Following negotiations with the Manawatu Model Railway Club, the Society brought A 371 to Feilding.
This carriage is a Class Two carriage and is historically important.
It was built in 1906. The carriage was under threat from vandals and was brought to Feilding for safe storage and restoration at
some time in the future.
We believe it is a valuable artifact, which should be saved for the future and we have taken this action to ensure its survival.
This carriage has since gone to Mainline Steam to be restored. As at mid 2011 it was at the workshop at Gladstone, Wairarapa.
Arriving by truck from Palmerston North. The Gantry was used to put A371 back on its bogies.
