One hundred years since it was opened, the North Island Main Trunk remains a symbol of what railways have stood for in New Zealand's history. From the early aspirations of colonial politicians to its long and at times troubled construction; from its boom years to the later decline of passenger services; from competition with road to electrification, the North Island Main Trunk has charted the ebb and flow of New Zealand's railway history. Main Trunk: Portrait of a Railway brings together many photographs and images to tell the story of this line and its role in the development of New Zealand.
