Rails that Built a Nation
An Encyclopedia of New Zealand Railways
Divided into three sections: Lines ; Along the track ; Railways at work. The Lines section describes each line in detail, with easy to read dates of opening and closing, length, history and passenger services. Along the track remembers the many trains that ran along these lines, from boat trains through to coal trains, mixed trains, railcars and suburban services. Railways at work takes the reader inside the system - the duties required of guards, joys of railway refreshment rooms, station names, the growth and variety of railway workshops, the tunnels and viaducts.
