Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Addington Railway Workshops was a major railway facility established in the Christchurch suburb of Addington in May 1880 by the New Zealand Railways Department. The workshops were previously in Carlyle Street and closed in 1990. Steam locomotives, passenger carriages and goods wagons were manufactured at Addington. At the peak nearly 2000 men were employed there. In later years Addington specialised in carriage construction and overhaul and wagon construction. At times the shops also manufactured gold dredges and aeroplane components. As part of the rationalisation of the New Zealand Railways Corporation following deregulation, the workshops closed on 14 December 1990.show more
