Technical planning

A restoration project succeeds through effective technical planning and specification writing.


Copies of original Baldwin blueprints and New Zealand Government Railways blueprints have been collected and documented.

Material specifications

In many cases new materials will have to be evaluated and specified for new component manufacture.

Parts database

All parts, old and new are assigned a unique part number. Part condition, relevant blueprint, specification and work required to restore or replace parts are recorded.
