This is The Detail's Long Read – one in-depth story read by us every weekend.
This week, it's Back on track: The new Golden Age of rail, written and read here by North & South magazine's junior staff writer Theo Macdonald.
You can read the full story in the August issue, or on the North & South website.
Long-distance rail travel is in for a revival in New Zealand — eventually. And you don’t have to be a nostalgia buff, trainspotter or climate-action protester to see why.
