Miranui mill's five ton "Bagnall" locomotive carrying guests and members of the press on the day of the official opening.

They are returning from a tour of the Makerua flax swamp.

The engine is passing beneath the railway line owned by the Wellington-Manawatu Railway Company which passed the mill.

The mill owners paid the railway company the sum of 1 pound for many years for the right to pass beneath the line.
