Railway through the Rata : Memories of Otira

Author(s): Stephen Wright

Railways | Secondhand

Otira has a unique and fascinating history: from its years as a coaching stop at the foot of the Otira Gorge, to its shanty town era through the toil of tunnel construction, to its golden years as a thriving railway town. This richly illustrated and carefully researched book explores Otira’s social history through time, while featuring a wide selection of stories from those who lived and worked there. It is a companion to two earlier Midland Line books: Journey to the Pass and West of the Divide.
