Introduction- 'A steep winding track formation threading its way through forest and bush miles from civilisation is a popular picture of the New Zealand bush tramway. A driver stood square on the footplate of his engine, braced against the continual pitch and roll, while behind him nimble footed brakemen perch high on the logs to control a primitive braking system in a scene repeated again and again throughout the country in an age when the forests rang to the crash of falling timber and echoed the panting exhaust of a bush lokey working hard. The bush tramways revolutionised the New Zealand logging industry and for over sixty years they enjoyed a golden age. They were rugged, to the eye of a professional railroader they had a primitive, nightmare quality but over crude track, up sheer grades, round torturous curves and across quaking trestles the bush crews rode their trains into legend and history of New Zealand. This is the story of one such line, The Piha Tramway' Please click here to ask a question
