a good reason to keep the North Wairarapa railway line open

Apart from the Wairarapa freight that could be moved over it, if it wasn't for Steven Joyce, the line serves as a good detour line for North Island Main Trunk trains when the line between Wellington and Palmerston North is closed for track maintenance.  Here is a diverted NIMT freight train seen near Eketahuna recently.  (Marty Melville photo)
