In operation since 1897, the Wairarapa Line, or the ‘Y’, runs from Wellington to Woodville via Upper Hutt, Featherston, Masterton, Eketahuna and Pahiatua.

Today, passenger services that run from Wellington to Masterton are a common sight each day, but beyond here to Woodville, traffic volumes are low.

Roll on Christmas 2010, where for two weeks over the holiday period, freights that normally ran along the NIMT were diverted along the ‘Y’ to cater for essential track maintenance on the main trunk.

This meant that up to nine freight trains a day were running on tracks that would normally see only one train a week.

EJ Videos was on hand to capture the action, covering trackside rail action from Woodville to Featherston.
