The New Zealand Railways Magazine, Volume 4, Issue 10 (February 1, 1930)

“Patronise Your Own Railways.”

“Patronise Your Own Railways.”

In travelling, it is the citizens’ duty to patronise their own railways (says “The New Zealander”). Why give the cream of the traffic to private concerns, and the heavy and laborious work to the Firm? Why lessen the earning power of the Firm? Why, while partners, reduce the efficiency and threaten the welfare of the National Firm?

All citizens should school themselves into the larger national life and accept, loyally, the responsibility that is theirs, as partners in the Firm, and (even at the risk of a little inconvenience) support their own Firm, and travel by rail.
