Hero of the Hill free pdf "Engine H One-Ninety-Nine worked the Wairarapa line, pulling carriages up the steep incline of the Rimutaka Hill." It's a darned long way to the summit of the Rimutakas, and a steep climb at that. But Engine H 199 used to do its bit to get people and freight through the Rimutaka Ranges. The story is told in Joy Cowley's faultless rhyme and rhythm and concludes with a double-page fact spread about the locomotives and brake vans that were needed to achieve this feat.
