N34A8370 La19034 8 Feb 2020 small

In early February La19034 left Paekakariki for a new home in the Wairarapa.   Prior to departing Paekakariki it was given a cosmetic spruceup by our members.  It is on long term loan to the Rail Heritage Trust. It will be a feature exhibit in the resored Greytown Goods Shed to help tell the story of goods traffic on the NZR.

La19034 is a type La-6 highside open wagon.  It was built at the NZR Addington workshops in 1938. We still have another La wagon on display at Paekakariki.
