Name/Title

Pipe, Glenham Tunnel Drainpipe

About this object

This brown ceramic drainpipe came from the Glenham Railway Tunnel.

An extension of the Wyndham branch line, the line reached Glenham on May 1, 1890. The line included a 301 metres long tunnel, which was constructed in 1887. The line from Wyndham to Glenham closed in 1930, however, the tunnel still remains intact on private land. The tunnel is the only rail tunnel in Southland and one of the southernmost railway tunnels in the world. A fun run/walk through the tunnel is held annually as a charity fundraiser.
