Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Canterbury Railway Society is an organisation of railway enthusiasts based in the Canterbury region of New Zealand's South Island. The Canterbury Branch came into existence in the late 1950s. In its early years, one of its major activities was in the operation of passenger excursions on the national rail network, then operated by the New Zealand Railways Department. In that era, there were far more excursion trains than there are today, and far more railway lines in general, including the many branch lines that were closed in the 1960s and 70s. Steam traction was used in the South Island for longer than in the North Island, and a variety of motive power could be found on any of these trains.show more
