Rail free pdf *Best Books for Christmas, 2014* Weekend Herald Rail: 150 Years of Rail in New Zealand is a rich, loving and lavish record of how New Zealanders have interacted with trains and railways since first European settlement to more recent times. Produced in association with the Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT), and primarily showcasing an array of machines in their full glory, it also portrays epic feats of construction, the identities and personalities who influenced our rail story, tragedies that gripped a nation, how rail was instrumental in shaping our fledgling and largely agricultural economy, and restoration and renaissance into the modern day. What emerges is an absorbing and dramatic photographic account, a keepsake for aficionados and general readers alike. A stunning, timely and brilliantly compelling tribute to our life with rail.

About Matt Turner

Born and raised in England, Matt Turner has seldom lived out of earshot of a train, from the roar of diesel-electrics passing through the London suburbs to the toot of the miniature loco in Whangaparaoa, north of Auckland, where he lives today with his wife and family. Graduating from art school in 1986, he has spent the intervening years as a picture researcher, editor, writer, indexer, book packager and general publishing consultant. He is the author of eight non-fiction books and hundreds of articles for online encyclopedias and partworks, on topics ranging from elephants to abstract art.
