Goods Shed and Yard Operation:

Shed and yard costs could be reduced by the installation of up-to-date mechanical appliances and devices at a number of stations. Provision is being made at Auckland new goods shed for electrically operated traversing cranes. Mechanical appliances for handling goods and wagons are necessary at Christ church goods, Timaru, New Plymouth, Dunedin, Wanganui, Greymouth, Wellington, Invercargill (yard), Palmerston North, and Frankton. The electric overhead cranes at present in use in the Invercargill goods shed and in the “D” shed Christchurch have been found to be very successful and economical.
