Rail Still Moving Through Central NI

Despite many roads including State Highway One being closed in the centre of the North Island there is one form of transport getting through, rail.

All Tranz Scenic services moving passengers by rail between Auckland and Wellington are still operational as well all Toll Rail freight trains.

Train drivers report seeing some of the heaviest snowfalls of their driving careers around the centre of the North Island.

However Toll Rail Group General Manager Gary Taylor says the good news for all Toll Rail customers is that their freight is moving despite the bad weather that’s impacted on all other forms of land transport.
