Of the old steam engined double Enders Ngairo was the fastest, Takapuna on the Bayswater run was the smartest , it took me to and from the city at least five days per week for four years . I spent half the time hanging over the engine room railing watching the engineer, especially when he was so deft at responding to telegraph orders from a nervous skipper on a fast tide or a cross wind while berthing .
