“Besides giving faster and more frequent services, the rail-cars will make better connections between the Wairarapa and the Main Trunk services at both Palmerston North and Wellington.
“There will be a prompt connection in the morning at Palmerston North for the Wairarapa passengers ex the Limited from Auckland. Passengers from North of Masterton will be able to visit Wellington and after spending over 4 hours there return home by rail-car the same evening. Connections for passengers ex the New Plymouth line to the Wairarapa will also be improved. Wellington passengers for Masterton will be able to travel out in the morning and have over 6 hours at Masterton before returning in the afternoon.
“Another rail-car service has been arranged which will enable Woodville residents to spend the evening in Palmerston North and return home the same night.
“The Palmerston North residents will have rail-car services available which they may use for spending the day or the afternoon in the Wairarapa.
“On special occasions (for holidays, race-meetings, etc.) the rail-car services will be supplemented as required by steam trains.”
