the stagecoach from Christchurch to Greymouth, circa 1908

Actually headed in the opposite direction and by this stage the trip would have only have been between Otira and Broken River. As the Midland Line was progressively (if slowly) opened, the coach journey between the railheads was progressively shortened.

For lots more, see the book On the TransAlpine Trail.
