Railways Magazine advertisement, 1938


In the late 1930s the first Labour government strongly promoted New Zealand's publicly owned rail system as a key driver of economic development. This 1938 advertisement from the New Zealand Railways Magazine, starring one of the big K-class locomotives introduced earlier that decade, trumpets New Zealand Railways' commitment to safety, comfort and efficiency.
