Main Trunk - Portrait of a Railway : A Celebration of 100 Years of North Island Railway History
Johnson, Christine and Larsen, Ruth and Ramshaw, Kevin

Grantham House Publishing, Wellington, 2008, 152 pages. Inscription on front endpaper, otherwise good secondhand condition.

One hundred years since it was opened, the North Island Main Trunk linking Wellington and Auckland remains the country's most important railway and a symbol of what railways have stood for in New Zealand's history. From the early aspirations of colonial politicians to its long and at times troubled construction; from its boom years to the later decline of passenger services; from competition with road to electrification, the North Island Main Trunk has charted the ebb and flow of New Zealand's railway history. This book brings together many photographs and images, including colour, to tell the story of this line and its role in the development of New Zealand.
