‘The Country Commuter’ is an informative outline of the regional railway network in the Christchurch and Canterbury area, covering the construction and operation of the railways. These lines connected the port with the rural hinterland and the suburbs.
The railways discussed include the Canterbury Provincial Railway, the Christchurch-Ferrymead Line, the Lyttelton Line and tunnel, the Canterbury Great Southern and branches to Riccarton Racecourse, Southbridge, Little River and Methven, the Great Northern with branches to Cheviot and Oxford, and the Rangiora suburban service.
Illustrated throughout with black and white photos, maps, gradient profiles, timetables, bibliography and glossary. Our limited stocks of ‘The Country Commuter’ are among the last copies of this limited run publication.
