The Seddonville Branch, later truncated as the Ngakawau Branch, was a branch line railway in the West Coast region of New Zealand's South Island. Construction began in 1874 and it reached its final terminus at the Mokihinui Mine just beyond Seddonville in 1895. In 1981 it was closed past Ngakawau and effectively became an extension of the Stillwater - Westport Line, since formalised as the Stillwater Ngakawau Line.

Famous quotes containing the word branch:
“In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity but each can become accomplished in any branch he wishes, society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have a mind, without ever becoming hunter, fisherman, shepherd or critic.”
—Karl Marx (18181883)
