Abstract:

"The North Island Main Trunk and challenges are synonymous. From the time the idea of a railway linking Wellington with Auckland was first mooted there were challenges - economic, political and geographic. ... When the last spike was driven on 6 November 1908 the North Island Main Trunk became the link between country and town. This link helped to develop New Zealand, and is still helping in the development of our country. The line is more than a railway; it is an integral part of our social and econimic history. Trains on the trunk is a celebration of over 100 years of construction and operations of the most important railway in New Zealand."--Page 3.
