■■'■- Because of an engine failure on the Rimutaka incline late on Tuesday' afternoon, passengers by the Woodville train, scheduled to reach Wellington- at 5.44 p.m., were transhipped to a fleet of . buses at Featherston and brought to Wellington by road. v Extra cars were added to the* train, at Woodville, and because of the trouble with a bridge south of Longburn, the Napier-Wellington express did not proceed beyond Woodville.7 This decision was. _. made to relieve the Manawatu line of as much traffic as possible while repairs' to the damaged bridge were being completed..' Passengers from Hawke's Bay joined the Wairarapa train at Woodville, but were 4 unable to complete the journey to Welling- ton by rail because of the break- down on the incline. Several buses which left Featherston between 7.35 and 8 p.m., brought them to Wellington. - -
