Taieri Gorge Wrap-up

These are the last of our photos from the Taieri Gorge Rail trip that we did with Dunedin Railways on 29 December 2019. We travelled return from Dunedin Railway Station to Middlemarch.


Middlemarch Railway Station.

  1. Are all of the stations so well maintained? Or is this a special excursion train, and they have kept things up for the sake of historical accuracy? (You may have said in a previous post, and I missed it.)

  2. The trip is a real gem, eh? I did it the first time back I think 1980, and after I made some comment to the conductor, the train stopped at Sam Neill’s dad’s place, which has a mineral water spring by the line. Result, we all got to try the water….
