Description

Last Train to Paradise describes the halcyon days of New Zealand rail. The 'name' trains and journeys cover a considerable period of New Zealand's history, from the late 1800s, through the 'golden' era of train travel, and conclude with the introduction of new services in the last half of the century. The book also includes a wide variety of fascinating and unfamiliar photographs, not just of the trains themselves but also of the people who travelled in them.

The author

Graham Hutchins, author of Great New Zealand Railway Journeys, has written many books on New Zealand railways and is the ideal writer for this book. He has also written many books on rugby and cricket, as well as the earlier Exisle title, Eight Days a Week. He lives in Hamilton.
