The big bird with<br />

dreams to match<br />

• By Heidi<br />

Slade<br />

HUNDREDS of<br />

years ago, moas<br />

used to walk<br />

across the land<br />

near where Carly<br />

Waddleton lives.<br />

Now she has written<br />

a children’s book about<br />

a moa, to encourage her<br />

two sons and others to<br />

follow their dreams.<br />

Inspired by her sons Louis and<br />

Arthur’s moa obsession, Waddleton<br />

will launch her first book<br />

next Saturday.<br />

Dreams of a Moa tells the<br />

story of a moa that has a go at<br />

achieving its dreams, all around<br />

the world.<br />

“I wanted the book to be about<br />

encouraging everyone to give<br />

your dreams a try, even if you<br />

have challenges – like the moa, a<br />

bird without wings,” she said.<br />

“Not only for my sons, but for<br />

everyone else.”<br />

Waddleton and her sons often<br />

visited the Canterbury Museum,<br />

where they became “obsessed”<br />

with<br />

the moa, she<br />

said.<br />

“They were so<br />

curious about it.”<br />

Inspiration for the<br />

story was also taken<br />

from Waddleton’s own<br />

experience of being born with a<br />

heart condition.<br />

Vaping<br />

products<br />

stolen<br />

in store<br />

break-in<br />

• By Heidi Slade<br />

VAPING PRODUCTS were<br />

among items stolen from<br />

MetroMart Sumner Beach when<br />

it was burgled at about 3.50am on<br />

Saturday.<br />

A group of four people allegedly<br />

smashed a hole in the store’s front<br />

window, then proceeded to take<br />

majority of its vaping products,<br />

including the shelves the products<br />

were on, one of the store’s owners<br />

said.<br />

The MetroMart is on Wakefield<br />

Ave and had security cameras,<br />

inside and outside the store.<br />

The owner said it was hard to<br />

tell what kind of tool the burglars<br />

used to break in, however she said<br />

it looked like a hammer.<br />

Three of the four individuals<br />

came in and out of the MetroMart<br />

multiple times through the broken<br />

window, while the fourth sat<br />

in the vehicle outside the store,<br />

she said. The burglary lasted<br />

about four minutes.<br />

“They know what they’re<br />

doing,” she said. “(It) seems like<br />

they know the store.”<br />

The man who managed Lyttelton<br />

TŪRANGA’S upcoming Heritage<br />

Highlights delves into the<br />

history of Dr William Donald,<br />

the forgotten man of Lyttelton.<br />

Donald (1815–1884) was<br />

a doctor, surgeon, dentist,<br />

immigration officer, returning<br />

officer, resident magistrate,<br />

coroner, registrar of births,<br />

marriages and deaths and a<br />

Justice of the Peace.<br />

He was an administrator par<br />

excellence and prominent in early<br />

Lyttelton society, yet he seems to be<br />

often overlooked.<br />

City council head of<br />

libraries and information<br />

Carolyn Robertson said an<br />

event at Tūranga will offer<br />

the chance to explore the<br />

history of this man and the<br />

influence he has had on<br />

the development of early<br />

Lyttelton.<br />

Donald was elected chair of the<br />

first Lyttelton Municipal Council in<br />

1862 and represented Lyttelton on the<br />

Canterbury Provincial Council<br />

news<br />

from 1855–7.<br />

He was appointed medical officer<br />

for Port Cooper – now Port Lyttelton<br />

– to provide medical services to those<br />

preparing for the arrival of the first<br />

Canterbury Association ships.<br />

Following Donald’s death in<br />

1884, his life was celebrated by a full<br />

Masonic funeral.<br />

• Dr William Donald: the man<br />

who managed Lyttelton will<br />

be held on <strong>May</strong> 24, 10–11am,<br />

at Tūranga. Free, bookings<br />

required.<br />

Height of container stacks unknown<br />

The city council isn’t sure how high the shipping container stacks are at<br />

the Portlink industrial site in Woolston, despite there being an 11-metre<br />

building height limit for the site under the District Plan.<br />

Hundreds clean up waterways<br />

438 bags<br />

of rubbish<br />

collected<br />

THE MOTHER of All Clean<br />

Ups saw more than 1000<br />

volunteers collect over 2300kg of<br />

litter from waterways.<br />

The annual litter collection<br />

event on Saturday took place<br />

along the Heathcote River,<br />

Lyttelton harbour basin and the<br />

Estuary edge.<br />

Members from 55 community<br />

groups filled 438 large plastic<br />

bags with rubbish.<br />

Among the rubbish were 180<br />

large items, such as tyres, pellets,<br />

plastic Christmas trees and an<br />

old barbecue, Avon Heathcote<br />

Eastuary Ihutai Trust manager<br />

Tanya Jenkins said.<br />

“We saved 2370kg of litter<br />

entering our waterways during<br />

the event.”<br />

But Jenkins said she was<br />

disappointed the amount of litter<br />

collected had not decreased from<br />

last year.<br />

A goal of the clean up is to see<br />

the amount of litter collected<br />

each year get smaller, indicating<br />

there is less rubbish going into<br />

waterways.<br />

Jenkins said the majority of the<br />

litter they picked up was plastic,<br />

LeBron<br />

by Jeff Benedict<br />

LeBron is unquestionably the greatest basketball player of the 21st century. Off the<br />

court, LeBron’s political activism, outspoken stance on racism and social injustice<br />

have helped build a social media presence that includes 1<strong>17</strong> million followers on<br />

Instagram and 51 million followers on Twitter.<br />

He is an international brand worth billions of dollars. He doesn’t just have huge<br />

endorsement deals with some of the biggest corporations in the world; LeBron sits on<br />

boards of directors and has an equity stake in the companies he sponsors. He has<br />

forged a close friendship with President Barack Obama and clashed publicly with<br />

President Donald Trump.<br />

Benedict shows the initial slow rise of a star that suddenly transformed into a speeding<br />

comet during his senior year of high school. It is a unique and unmissable insight into<br />

one of the world’s greatest athletes.<br />

Nine Lives - Expeditions to Everest<br />

by robert Mads Anderson<br />

Robert Mads Anderson is an elite mountaineer with a solitary goal: to conquer Everest.<br />

After nearly getting killed on his first expedition, he led a team up a new route on the<br />

Kangshung Face without oxygen or Sherpa support, climbed solo on the remote North<br />

Face, and finally guided a team to the top of the world. Incorporating a<br />

who’s who of internationally recognised climbers, including Stephen Venables, Reinhold<br />

Messner and Chris Bonington, Nine Lives traces the story of Everest, from the big,<br />

nationally supported expeditions of the 1980s; through the small teams forging new<br />

routes and climbing solo; to the commercially guided expeditions of today.<br />

Set against the majestic backdrop of the world’s tallest peak, Anderson’s nine Everest<br />

expeditions over eighteen years define what truly drives a human being to the greatest<br />

of heights. With a foreword by Peter Hillary and 32 pages of colour photography, in<br />

Nine Lives Robert Mads Anderson offers his personal account of the world’s highest<br />

mountain.<br />

Night Traders<br />

by Armando Lucas Correa<br />

Four generations of women experience love, loss, war and hope from the rise of Nazism to<br />

the Cuban Revolution and, finally, the fall of the Berlin Wall in this sweeping novel from the<br />

internationally bestselling author of The German Girl. Berlin, 1931: Ally Keller, a talented young<br />

poet, is alone and scared when she gives birth to a mixed-race daughter she names Lilith.<br />

As the Nazis rise to power, Ally knows she must keep her baby in the shadows to protect her<br />

against Hitler’s deadly ideology of Aryan purity. But as she grows, it becomes more and more<br />

difficult to keep Lilith hidden, so Ally sets in motion a dangerous and desperate plan to send her<br />

daughter across the ocean to safety. Havana, 1958: Now an adult, Lilith has few memories of<br />

her mother or her childhood in Germany. Besides, she’s too excited for her future with her beloved<br />

Martin, a Cuban pilot with strong ties to the Batista government. But as the flames of revolution<br />

ignite, Lilith and her newborn daughter, Nadine, find themselves at a terrifying crossroads.<br />

Berlin, 1988: Nadine has spent her entire life avoiding the truth about her own family’s history. It<br />

takes her daughter, Luna, to convince her to uncover the truth about the choices her mother and<br />

grandmother made to ensure the survival of their children. And it will fall to Luna to come to terms<br />

with a shocking betrayal that changes everything she thought she knew about her family’s past.<br />

The Survivor<br />

how I Survived Six Concentration Camps and Became a<br />

Nazi hunter - by Josef Lewkowicz & Michael Calvin<br />

The extraordinary true story of the Holocaust survivor who endured six death camps<br />

before joining the hunt for the Nazis and bringing his tormentors to justice. The<br />

Survivor is an astonishing account of one man’s unbreakable spirit, unshakeable faith,<br />

and extraordinary courage in the face of evil. At only 16 years old, Josef Lewkowicz<br />

became a number, prisoner 85314.He and his father were separated from their family<br />

and herded to the Krak w-Plasz w concentration camp. Before the war was over Josef<br />

would witness the unique horrors of six of the most notorious Nazi concentration<br />

camps, including Auschwitz, Mauthausen and Ebensee. When he was liberated from<br />

Ebensee at the end of the war, Josef returned home to find that he was the only one left<br />

alive in an extended family of 150. Compelled by the need to do something to avenge<br />

that loss, he joined the Jewish police and was recruited as an intelligence officer for<br />

the US Army who gave him a team to search for Nazis in hiding.<br />

DEBUT:<br />

Carly<br />

Waddleton’s<br />

book,<br />

Dreams of a<br />

Moa, will be<br />

launched on<br />

<strong>May</strong> 27.<br />

Children’s book<br />

inspired by sons<br />

• From page 1<br />

“A lot of people are living with<br />

health issues,” she said.<br />

“In the illustrations, you will<br />

see that the main character<br />

actually has a prosthetic leg.<br />

I hope this subtle inclusion<br />

illustrates that anyone and<br />

everyone can go after what they<br />

dream of.”<br />

The book launch will be held<br />

on Saturday, <strong>May</strong> 27, at the<br />

Redcliffs Library from 10.30am-<br />

1pm, with support from the<br />

Canterbury Museum, which will<br />

be bringing in moa bones, a moa<br />

egg and other artefacts.<br />

Having the launch at Redcliffs<br />

Library was important for both<br />

Waddleton and her family.<br />

“We love living in this area,”<br />

Waddleton said.<br />

“The sense of community is<br />

amazing, and so it is important<br />

for me to hold the book launch<br />

here.”<br />

Originally from Lincoln,<br />

England, Waddleton moved to<br />

New Zealand in 2009.<br />

She has lived in Moncks <strong>Bay</strong><br />

since 2011, where she met Megan<br />

Salole, the illustrator of the book,<br />

who happened to live just down<br />

the street.<br />

It took Waddelton and Salole<br />

about two years to finish Dreams<br />

of a Moa.<br />

“I think I’ve always known I<br />

was a writer, but I’ve just never<br />

given it the time,” Waddleton<br />

said.<br />

She began with poetry; her first<br />

poem was published when she<br />

was 8-years-old.<br />

But since having kids and<br />

reading to them, Waddleton<br />

said she realised how magical<br />

children’s books can be.<br />

• Dreams of a Moa is<br />

available from most<br />

bookshops or online at<br />

www.carlywaddleton.com<br />

• From page 1<br />

Among the items stolen were<br />

drinks and confectionery.<br />

But the owner said the vaping<br />

products were taken first.<br />

“(They) went straight into the<br />

vaping products.”<br />

She said they also attempted<br />

to steal cigarettes but could not<br />

access them, as they were locked<br />

away. The vaping products,<br />

however, were not locked up.<br />

The burglars also attempted to<br />

steal from the till.<br />

“They made a mess,” the<br />

owner said.<br />

She said the MetroMart<br />

morning shift staff arrived<br />

about 9am and police were<br />

notified of the break-in at about<br />

9.30am.<br />

Police arrived at the Metro-<br />

“I haven’t heard anything back<br />

from the police,” the owner said.<br />

“We know this stuff is happening<br />

all around Christchurch.”<br />

She took over the store in<br />

February, with one other owner.<br />

A police spokesperson said<br />

a scene examination has been<br />

conducted and inquiries are<br />

ongoing.<br />

City council admits it doesn’t know<br />

height of shipping container stacks<br />

• By Tony Simons<br />

THE CITY council isn’t sure<br />

how high the shipping container<br />

stacks are at the Portlink<br />

industrial site in Woolston,<br />

despite there being an 11-metre<br />

building height limit for the site<br />

under the District Plan.<br />

Nearby residents are upset<br />

and angry the city council is<br />

allowing container stacks up to<br />

six high on the land adjacent<br />

to their homes, but city council<br />

planning and consents boss John<br />

Higgins said the fact the council<br />

doesn’t know the exact height<br />

of the stacks doesn’t change the<br />

council’s view.<br />

“They are allowed to stack to<br />

six containers high at the moment,”<br />

he said.<br />

That decision was made by the<br />

city council in November, pending<br />

the outcome of a resource<br />

consent application.<br />

“I can’t see there’s been<br />

reference to an actual height<br />

(in the resource consent), only<br />

the number of containers,” said<br />

Higgins.<br />

Investigations by <strong>Bay</strong> <strong>Harbour</strong><br />

News show operators are stacking<br />

containers at least 11.6m<br />

high, with most up to <strong>17</strong>.4m.<br />

“The current situation is just<br />

temporary to allow the resource<br />

process to be completed,” said<br />

Higgins.<br />

The industrial park sits<br />

between the Ōpāwaho Heathcote<br />

River and Tunnel Rd.<br />

Residents to the east are also<br />

upset by noise at the site.<br />

High property developer<br />

Richard Peebles’ company<br />

Braeburn Property owns the<br />

land.<br />

After residents complained,<br />

Peebles lodged the resource<br />

consent application, asking to<br />

be allowed to build the stacks<br />

higher than the authorised 11m.<br />

He also wants permission<br />

industrial site two weeks<br />

ago, with containers<br />

stacked six high.<br />

Above – A 45G1 40ft-long<br />

high-cube container. It is 2.9<br />

metres tall, and promoted<br />

as the largest standard<br />

height container available.<br />

to store containers four high<br />

(11.6m) on some parts of the site<br />

designated for landscaping and<br />

stormwater.<br />

Peebles was approached for<br />

comment, but did not respond.<br />

Residents said the majority<br />

of containers on the site are<br />

40ft-long 45G1 ‘high-cube’<br />

containers, most common for<br />

international shipping. Each is<br />

2.9m tall.<br />

Resident Melissa McCutchan<br />

said eight stacks of those containers<br />

– directly opposite her<br />

house on Long St – were six high<br />

until the stacks were lowered to<br />

four a fortnight ago.<br />

Other container towers,<br />

opposite Gould Cres, were still<br />

stacked six high (<strong>17</strong>.4m).<br />

A city council environmental<br />

health officer visited the area<br />

on Friday, <strong>May</strong> 5 at 6.45am to<br />

monitor noise levels.<br />

McCutchan said operations on<br />

the site usually start from 6am<br />

but that Friday the site was quiet<br />

until 7.20am, after the officer<br />

left.<br />

The city council said no-one is<br />

forewarned when council officers<br />

visit, but its officers do sometimes<br />

use sign-written vehicles.<br />

Residents claim work often<br />

stops when those vehicles are<br />

seen in the area.<br />

City council head of regulatory<br />

compliance Tracey Weston<br />

said using a combination of<br />

(sign-written) pool vehicles and<br />

unmarked vehicles will continue.<br />

It depends on vehicle availability<br />

at the time, she said.<br />

Pou standing guard<br />

at start of pathway’s<br />

• Watch the video on<br />

cultural narrative walk<br />

THE FIRST OF several planned<br />

sculptures has been placed on<br />

the Coastal Pathway.<br />

The Pou, carved by Fayne<br />

Robinson, is located near the<br />

heritage tram stop at the start<br />

of the Moncks <strong>Bay</strong> section<br />

currently under development.<br />

Said Fayne: “This Pou serves as<br />

an entrance marker – a kaitiaki<br />

– to mark the beginning of the<br />

Te Ara Ihutai cultural narrative<br />

walk.<br />

“The Pou looks out to Rapanui,<br />

standing in acknowledgement<br />

of this significant site as a place<br />

of settlement, the shelter caves<br />

within Raekura (Redcliffs) and<br />

the many taonga that date back<br />

to early settlement in the region.<br />

“The Pou acknowledges the<br />

past and looks out to the future<br />

as a kaitiaki for the area for<br />

those presently here and those<br />

who follow after (Mō tātou, ā,<br />

mō kā uri a muri ake nei).”<br />

It will soon be joined by Flight,<br />

a large bronze sculpture from<br />

the late Llew Summers. Flight<br />

will sit along the pathway near<br />

the Mt Pleasant Community<br />

Centre.<br />

A small group of residents<br />

have been spearheading the<br />

fundraising campaign to buy<br />

the sculpture as a tribute to<br />

Summers, who lived and worked<br />

in McCormack’s <strong>Bay</strong>. Flight is a<br />

homage to the environment and<br />

the many migratory and coastal<br />

early stages of collaborating with<br />

project to develop a large grass<br />

sculpture next to the pathway at<br />

Scott Park.<br />

Boat overturns,<br />

four rescued<br />

• By Nathan Morton<br />

FOUR PEOPLE were rescued<br />

after a boat capsized in rainy<br />

weather at Sumner Beach on<br />

Tuesday last week.<br />

The boat’s skipper, Simon England,<br />

said the small yacht was<br />

sailing fine until one of its three<br />

bungs went missing, causing the<br />

vessel to drift further into the<br />

open water.<br />

He said watching the rescue<br />

boat arrive was a moment of<br />

relief.<br />

“It was like ‘finally’, it’s what<br />

they’re there for and it’s good<br />

they found us quickly,” England<br />

said after being rescued.<br />

“I just said ‘thank you’ to them<br />

and tried to get everyone into the<br />

boat, get them warm.”<br />

HERALD<br />

While England was grateful<br />

to have the crew safe and sound,<br />

his boat isn’t likely to be as lucky.<br />

“I think the boat’s screwed<br />

with all the waves,” he said.<br />

“But we were just worried<br />

about getting people rescued<br />

– we’ll take care of the boat<br />

afterwards.”<br />

Coastguard Sumner Lifeboat<br />

skipper Heather McDonald said<br />

her rescue team had been called<br />

by police to help an overturned<br />

yacht on the bar.<br />

The four rescued people were<br />

mildly hypothermic, she said.<br />

“The water was about waistdeep,<br />

they were waving to the<br />

boat so it went straight to them.<br />

It was a quick response, we’re<br />

happy we found them quickly.”<br />

• By Darryl Baser<br />

A GROUP of Te Aratai College<br />

students overcame some big<br />

hurdles to compete at the<br />

national schools’ kī-o-rahi<br />

tournament.<br />

Kī-o-rahi is a traditional<br />

Māori ball game that has been<br />

described as a cross between netball,<br />

handball and tag rugby.<br />

Two staff members and the <strong>17</strong><br />

students from Te Aratai travelled<br />

to Rotorua for the tournament,<br />

but first had to overcome the cost<br />

of getting there.<br />

Assistant health, physical and<br />

outdoor education teacher Jesse<br />

Harding said each student had<br />

to raise $1000 through their<br />

sponsors.<br />

“The Kutt (a fitness club), here<br />

in Linwood, paid for our flights.<br />

We wouldn’t have been able to go<br />

without that help,” he said.<br />

Construction company Apollo<br />

Projects and the college also<br />

helped pay for the trip – but there<br />

were still a few more obstacles<br />

along the way.<br />

“Things started to get a bit<br />

scary when at 4am, I received a<br />

text from our airline saying our<br />

flight (8.25am departure) was<br />

cancelled.”<br />

The airline told the group<br />

they “could get some of us there<br />

tomorrow”.<br />

Principal Richard Edmundson<br />

came to the rescue, helping to<br />

get the group to Auckland in<br />

time for a connecting flight to<br />

Rotorua.<br />

Kī-o-rahi is played between<br />

two teams of eight (four male,<br />

four female) on a large circular<br />

field, with the teams swapping<br />

on road to kī-o-rahi competition<br />

PLAYERS: LJ<br />

Beattie, who<br />

was named<br />

most valuable<br />

player, and Leah<br />

McCallum-Simon<br />

were part of<br />

the Te Aratai<br />

College team<br />

at the national<br />

schools’ kī-o-rahi<br />

tournament.<br />

between defending the central<br />

pou (pole) and trying to score<br />

points by hitting it with the ball.<br />

All players wear tags which opponents<br />

try to rip off.<br />

Team members LJ Beattie, 16,<br />

and Leah McCallum-Simon, 15,<br />

said the experience furthered<br />

their knowledge of Te Ao Māori<br />

(the Māori world).<br />

Beattie, 16, won the most valuable<br />

player tane (male). “I used<br />

to play rugby league and touch,<br />

which has improved my passing<br />

catching and foot work skills.<br />

But, at the moment, I have been<br />

playing basketball, which helps<br />

in stressful situations when you<br />

can be stuck and not sure where<br />

to go (on the field),” the year 12<br />

student said.<br />

Year 11 student McCallum-Simon<br />

said: “It was good to be<br />

able to see the different things in<br />

Rotorua and being able to make<br />

my connection with everyone<br />

else in the team.<br />

“I play netball and I think that<br />

helps with vision as I know where<br />

other people are on the field. You<br />

do passes like in netball. Playing<br />

volleyball (also helps) because<br />

you do a lot of jumping and in<br />

kī-o-rahi you jump to throw at<br />

the tupu (goal zone) and do lots<br />

of explosive movements.”<br />

Harding was pleased with how<br />

the students represented the<br />

school. The school finished 25th<br />

out of 38 teams at the tournament.<br />

In September, Canterbury<br />

is set to host the South Island kīo-rahi<br />

competition during Māori<br />

language week. Te Aratai College<br />

is also set to play a hosting role<br />

at next year’s national schools’<br />

competition.<br />

Right – Landing one of the electric engines in Lyttelton, 1928. Te Ūaka The Lyttelton<br />

Museum ref. 14985.230 https://www.teuaka.org.nz/online-collection/1136027<br />

Back to the future of electric rail<br />

THE LYTTELTON rail line,<br />

connecting the port town with<br />

the city of Christchurch, has a<br />

long and varied history.<br />

The 2.6 km Moorhouse (later<br />

Lyttelton) Rail Tunnel through<br />

the Port Hills was opened in<br />

1867 and served as a critically<br />

important conduit for both passenger<br />

and freight trains from<br />

the volcanic harbour of Whakaraupō<br />

through to the Waitaha<br />

Canterbury plains.<br />

In the early days of the line,<br />

the steam locomotives ushered<br />

in an era of exponential growth<br />

through the late 1800s for both<br />

the port town, the city, and the<br />

wider Canterbury region.<br />

However, Victorian steam<br />

technology was not without<br />

its challenges, with the<br />

locomotives producing large<br />

amounts of smoke and soot that<br />

accumulated in the Lyttelton<br />

Tunnel. The growth in the<br />

use of the line led to reduced<br />

visibility, increasing breathing<br />

difficulties for passengers and<br />

crews alike, and public criticism<br />

of the outdated ‘smoke and dirt<br />

service’.<br />

By the early 1920s, with the<br />

growing population, a solution<br />

was needed.<br />

In 1925, the Minister of<br />

Railways Gordon Coates<br />

commissioned an investigation<br />

into the potential for<br />

electrification of the suburban<br />

networks in Auckland,<br />

Wellington, Christchurch, and<br />

Dunedin. The report concluded<br />

that, given the high volume of<br />

traffic and the unique challenges<br />

of the Lyttelton Tunnel, the<br />

Christchurch-Lyttelton line<br />

was a prime candidate for<br />

electrification.<br />

Previously, in 1923, the<br />

English Electric Company<br />

had constructed the EO class<br />

electric locomotives operating<br />

on the Otira section of the South<br />

Island’s Midland line, which included<br />

the Otira Tunnel. Similar<br />

to the situation with the Lyttelton<br />

Tunnel, the smoke from<br />

steam locomotives had been a<br />

significant issue that led to the<br />

decision to electrify the line.<br />

English Electric was thus<br />

entrusted with building the new<br />

electric locomotives for the 3ft<br />

6in (1067mm) narrow gauge<br />

Lyttelton line.<br />

Six EC class locomotives were<br />

constructed at the Dick Kerr<br />

works in Lancashire in 1928,<br />

bearing numbers EC7 to EC12.<br />

Mechanically, they were similar<br />

to the earlier EO class but they<br />

were designed with longer<br />

bogies, higher gearing for a top<br />

speed of 85km/h, and more powerful<br />

1188 hp (888 kW) motors.<br />

Their 50 tonne adhesive/gross<br />

weight was especially efficient<br />

in the 1-in-150 slope (0.67% gradient)<br />

of the tunnel ascent from<br />

the port.<br />

The electric rail service was inaugurated<br />

on February 14, 1929<br />

by the Minister for Railways<br />

W.B. Taverner at Christchurch<br />

Railway Station.<br />

The assembled crowd cheered<br />

as the first electric locomotive<br />

left for Lyttelton pulling a fully<br />

loaded train of ‘Midland red’<br />

passenger carriages.<br />

‘Juicing’ through 250 tons of<br />

overhead copper lines between<br />

the city and port – powered by<br />

the Lake Coleridge hydroelectric<br />

station via the new Woolston<br />

substation delivering 1500 volts<br />

DC at 900 amps – the EC class<br />

locomotives capably handled<br />

all freight and passenger duties<br />

from Christchurch to Lyttelton.<br />

Pulling freight trains of up to<br />

610 tonnes and passenger trains,<br />

including the Boat Train, up to<br />

406 tonnes, the service ushered<br />

in a new modern era of clean<br />

electric travel.<br />

By 1967, after almost four<br />

decades in service, the EC class<br />

locomotive fleet was nearing the<br />

end of its serviceable life. Operational<br />

and maintenance costs led<br />

to the decision to decommission<br />

the electric locomotives and<br />

replace them with more modern<br />

diesel counterparts. This change<br />

marked the end of the electric<br />

era on the Lyttelton line, with<br />

the last electric train making its<br />

journey on September 18, 1970.<br />

While EC8 to 12 were<br />

scrapped, EC7 was selected for<br />

preservation, with the Ferrymead-based<br />

Canterbury Railway<br />

Society taking custody of the<br />

locomotive in February 1972.<br />

EC7 became the first operating<br />

heritage electric locomotive in<br />

New Zealand when Ferrymead’s<br />

heritage railway, the country’s<br />

first rail line, was electrified in<br />

November 1988. EC7 still loads<br />

passengers in the same red carriages<br />

at the Ferrymead Park’s<br />

Moorhouse Station to this day.<br />

The shift from Victorian era<br />

steam to electric power was a<br />

significant move that improved<br />

efficiency, safety, and comfort for<br />

both passengers and crew.<br />

Likewise, the transition to diesel<br />

locomotives marked another<br />

important milestone in the history<br />

of the Lyttelton line through<br />

the later 20th century.<br />

In our 21st century, there is<br />

a renewed interest in electric<br />

rail, driven in large part by<br />

environmental concerns<br />

associated with the use of nonrenewable<br />

fossil fuels. Electric<br />

trains powered by hydro or<br />

geothermal energy emit far fewer<br />

greenhouse gases than their<br />

diesel counterparts, and New<br />

Zealand is well-positioned to<br />

take advantage of this trend.<br />

Whether tomorrow’s electric<br />

locomotives are powered by<br />

overhead wires or third-rail<br />

systems – or new technologies<br />

such as battery-powered trains<br />

and hydrogen fuel cells – it is<br />

quite possible we will be going<br />

back to the future of electric rail.<br />
