[1913]

In 1886 the New Zealand Midland Railway Company was contracted to build the 152 km railway between Brunnerton on the West Coast and Springfield in Canterbury. Several long tunnels were built but progress was very slow. On 25 May 1895 the Government took possession of the line, which was officially opened for traffic on 4 Aug. 1923. Since then the Midland Line has been the 212 km line between Rolleston and Greymouth
