Manganui River - should read as Makatote River

Well. so much for trusting the map (page 292) in my 2002 Lonely Planet-NZ guide book. Still not much information on the internet what river that is. I guess I didn't get a road map on that trip to reference. Fortunately there is information about the Makatote River Viaduct which locates the river. I had shot a picture of the tracks which also captured a control shed with the name Makatote on it. The only problem was the last 2 letters were blocked out. Now it all makes sense. Thanks!!
