Just north of Taumarunui this tramway survived until about the mid-sixties. In later years the tramway just ran between the mill and the NZR station but was of sufficient construction that the NZR would allow their wagons out on the tram. For many years the Railway Enthusiasts Society of Auckland's excursion trains would stop at the siding and take a ride on the tram. Unfortunately it isn't possible to find formation past the mill.
