David Long - Cross Creek
"Cross Creek was a small railway settlement at the bottom of the Rimutaka Ranges in the Wairarapa. It was established in 1875 to service the fell-engines that dragged trains up the steep gradients over the hills from Wellington. My grandfather was a guard there in the 1920’s and 30’s and my father lived there until he was 13. Cross Creek disappeared in 1955 when a tunnel was put through the hills." - David Long
