MOTAT - Surface Coatings Restoration

MOTAT - Surface Coatings Restoration
Date: Tuesday, 3rd October 2017
Location: MOTAT, Western Springs, Auckland

We have the fantastic opportunity to visit Motat and meet with the volunteers who maintain and restore the Tramcars.  They will be giving a presentation on the art of traditional coach-painting, which will include lots of photos and original specifications going back to the 1900 - 1930's.  They will then talk about what goes into looking after the Tramcars now, and we will get a chance to have a look at the Trams.

This will be held at MOTAT,  805 Great North Road, Western Springs, Auckland, with a 5.30pm arrival, and aiming for a 6 pm start.  As always, nibbles will be served around 5.45pm, however as they are not licensed, we will be sticking to tea, coffee, fizzy drinks, and juice.  

There is no charge for this event, and we invite you to bring along any colleagues who will be interested in this talk, but please RSVP, as we will need to inform MOTAT of how many people are attending.  For more information, click here, or to book, email
