Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Moutohora Branch was a branch line railway that formed part of New Zealand's national rail network in Poverty Bay in the North island of New Zealand. The branch ran for 78 km approximately North-West from Gisborne into the rugged and steep Raukumara Range to the terminus at Moutohora. Construction started in 1900, and the line was opened to Moutohora in November 1917. Built to the New Zealand standard 3 ft 6 in gauge the branch was intended to become part of the proposed East Coast Main Trunk Railway running from Napier to Hamilton by way of Gisborne, Opotiki, Tauranga and the eastern Waikato. This comprehensive scheme never came to pass, and the branch was closed in March 1959.show more
