The Train That Wanted To Fly

Last week as I was dropping my wife off at the train station I got a call from a friend telling me to not let her get on the train. She was just getting out of the car and saying goodbye to the kids. When I had a decent look the train was surrounded by tape and there were about four fire engines at the end of the platform.

Apparently the trains brakes malfunctioned and the train went through the end of the line and ended up propped up on a rock and lump of concrete up against a pole.

Luckily no-one was seriously hurt.

The joys of always having a camera with you 🙂

Rails To Nowhere

I was in Gisborne after New Year for a wedding and spotted this place as I was heading out to the venue on the day. Unfortunately I didn’t get to go back and ended up getting to the wedding a bit later than I expected. Luckily I was helping with some of the set-up so I was still early 🙂

Train Sleeper

I went on a train adventure with my girls and a friend in the school holidays and wouldn’t you know it someone fell asleep just across the carriage.

I couldnt resist 🙂
