Blurb/Shorttext:
The Seddonville Branch, now truncated and operating as the Ngakawau Branch, is a branch line railway in the West Coast region of New Zealand's South Island. Construction of the line began in 1874 and it reached its final terminus at the Mokihinui Mine just beyond Seddonville in 1895. Since 1981, it has been closed past Ngakawau and the operating portion effectively functions as an extension of the Stillwater - Westport Line.The Seddonville Branch was built for one reason: the transportation of coal from mines to the harbour in Westport. Unlike most other railways of the era, there was no expectation that the line would open up country for settlement and farming as the terrain was mountainous and not suited to any settlement of significant size.
