Does anyone know if a DVD has been made about the construction of the New Lynn Rail Trench? Perhaps someone knows who made such a DVD and where I could buy a copy.

Your help would be appreciated. :thanks

No DVDs that I know of but there's plenty of pictures.

How long has the construction been going for? The last time I took a train from Grafton to Glen Eden (about a month ago), the construction was still going on.

Cheers :)

Excavation started in mid-2009, finished earlier this year IIRC. The second track through the trench opened just last weekend.

How many trains will they put in the trench before they backfill it? ;)

Will the trains have to go over the top when the whistle blows and attack in the face of heavy machine gun fire?

And evacuation happened yesterday when someone drove a digger through a gas pipe..
