Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Mauriceville railway station was a rural railway station that served the small village of Mauriceville in the Wairarapa region of New Zealand's North Island. It was located on the Wairarapa Line between the stations of Kopuaranga and Mangamahoe with direct vehicular access from Opaki Kaiparoro Road. The station opened to all traffic in 1886 and was in service for 102 years until closed to both goods and passenger traffic in the 1980s. For many years it was a station of some importance and supported a small complement of staff. When the station opened in mid-1886, Mauriceville was served by mixed trains that had already been providing services to stations further south on those sections of the line that were opened as the railway line made its way north. Mauriceville was briefly the railhead until Mangamahoe opened early the next year followed by Eketahuna two years later. Mixed trains continued to provide the only regular passenger services to Mauriceville until the completion of the line through to Woodville in 1897.show more
