an NZR F class with a mixed train crosses the Waimakariri Gorge bridge, circa 1900

This was on the section which linked Oxford at the end of a branch from the Main North Line and Sheffield (on the Midland Line) in Canterbury, but was one of the first lines to be closed, in the early 1930s.

See the book On the TransAlpine Trail for more.
