Historical Notes: This image has been reproduced in three publications (as at February 2003): in "The era of the bush tram in New Zealand" by Paul Mahoney (1998, p 51); in "Rails through the bush" by Bob Stott (1973); and "The bush tram to the mill" by Bob Stott (1981, p 51). The information given in Paul Mahoney's book suggests that this is a picnic party (as given in a pencilled inscription beneath the original print in Godber Album Vol 109, p 47 (PA1-q-102)); but Bob Stott suggests this conveyance was "used to bring bush camp families out to the relative civilisation of the mill settlement and the like".
