Lower Hutt

Lower Hutt station (now Western Hutt) in April 1874, with the line travelling north up the west side of the river to Silverstream opening two years later. Before the Second World War, urban settlement in the lower Hutt Valley concentrated mainly on Petone, central Lower Hutt and Eastbourne, with a total population of 30,000.

Taupo

and numerous short branch lines in almost every region. It links all major urban centres except Nelson (Nelson, New Zealand), Taupo and Queenstown. The network is owned and managed by the New Zealand Railways Corporation, trading as KiwiRail. The network was constructed from 1863 onwards, mostly by government bodies, initially by the Provincial (Provinces of New Zealand) and later by central government (usually the Public Works Department (New Zealand Ministry of Works)). In 1993 New Zealand Rail Limited (Tranz Rail) was privatised (and later renamed Tranz Rail), with the New Zealand Railways Corporation retaining the land (due to Treaty of Waitangi claims on land taken for railway construction). In 2003 the government renationalised the network. KiwiRail operates all freight and most passenger services, including Tranz Metro passenger trains in the Wellington region; Veolia operates MAXX suburban passenger trains in Auckland; the Taieri Gorge Railway operates tourist passenger trains in Dunedin. '''Craters of the Moon Thermal Area''' (or ''Karapiti'' in Māori language) is a region with geothermal activity north of Taupo, New Zealand. It is a part of Wairakei, the largest geothermal field in New Zealand, with a surface area of about 25 km2, which lies in the Taupo Volcanic Zone. The name springs from the many hydrothermal eruption craters, which are in part barren and which have bright colours. Combined with the numerous steam vents, constantly shifting, collapsing and reforming giving the whole area desolate appearance, and the sulphur smell, the whole area has an “unearthly” atmosphere. Burton was born in Northampton, England, but was brought to New Zealand by his family when ten years old. He attended high school in Wanganui. He has been involved in a wide range of social and community organisations, including the Red Cross, the Department of Social Welfare, the Central Plateau Rural Education Activities Programme, the Council of Social Services, the Taupo Employment Support Trust, and the Taupo Sexual Abuse Counselling Service. He received a medal for his work in 1990. - Lake Taupo (Taupomoana) Taupo 616km² Crater lake - In the 1880s Putaruru consisted of little more than a hotel and a blacksmith's shop. In the early 1900s the Taupo Totara Timber Company (Taupo) acquired bush blocks north and north-west of Lake Taupo and erected a mill at Kopokorahi, near the present Kinleith (Tokoroa) (Tokoroa). A bush tramway was constructed linking that mill with the Mokai Mill, 51 miles (82 km) south-east of Putaruru. By 1905 logs were transported to Putaruru via this line, and by 1908 passengers and goods. The dismantling of this line began in 1944 but in 1946 the Ministry of Works purchased it and in 1948 it began rebuilding the 18 miles (29 km) between Putaruru and Kinleith as a New Zealand Government Railways (New Zealand Railways Department) branch line to serve the new Kinleith Mill for pulp (Wood pulp) and paper production. This was completed on 6 October 1952. fleet_size 25 (1 April 1978) destinations Kaitaia, Whangarei, Auckland, Hamilton (Hamilton, New Zealand), Tauranga, Whakatane, Rotorua, Taupo, Gisborne (Gisborne, New Zealand), Napier (Napier, New Zealand), New Plymouth, Wanganui, Palmerston North, Wellington, Blenheim (Blenheim, New Zealand), Nelson (Nelson, New Zealand), Westport (Westport, New Zealand), Hokitika, Christchurch, Oamaru, Timaru, Dunedin, Invercargill (At 1 April 1978) IATA NZ *Whakatane in November 1962 *Taupo and Oamaru in March 1966 Urban areas in the region include the towns of Taihape in the south, Ohakune the carrot-growing capital of NZ in the west, and Taupo in the north, with Turangi a major trout fishing base at the south of Lake Taupo and by the Kaweka Ranges in the east, The majority of the population of the area lives close to the shores of Lake Taupo, with some smaller settlements to the east of the volcanoes. These make their living largely through tourism, including skiing in the winter season, trout fishing, especially on the Tongariro river or by forestry in the plateau's northeast, which includes the Kaingaroa Forest or by working on the extensive Hydro Electric power system.
