The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 3, Issue 7 (November 1, 1928)


In the “Register of Arts and Sciences,” (an interesting journal published in London in the early days of last century) there appears in its issue of 10th January, 1824, an account of an iron railway constructed by Mr. H. R. Palmer, a noted civil engineer of the period. The “Palmer Railway” was on the mono-rail principle and created considerable interest in the transport world of the early nineteenth century.
