Visit of Inspection to Railway Workshops

Visit of Inspection to Railway Workshops

In a letter to the General Manager of Railways, Mr. H. H. Sterling, the secretary of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce, Mr. H. Snowdon Fairchild, refers to the recent visit of members of the Chamber to the Department's new workshops in the Hutt Valley, as follows:—

Many members of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce availed themselves of the kind invitation to visit, on 19th June, the Railway Workshops at Hutt; and at the meeting of the Council last evening expression was given to the appreciation of those participating, and I was directed to convey to you the thanks of the Council and members for the courtesies extended.

The tour of inspection proved of exceptional interest, and the scope and magnitude covered in the operations of these workshops was most impressive, being thorough testimony to the efforts of your Department to cope with the transport problems of the Dominion.
