most challenging railway engineering assignments of the last century.
We arrive at Taumarunui for our lunch, served with large pieces of nostalgia. It will be very like the fare served in the Taumarunui refreshment rooms when the Auckland Express pulled in many years ago.
Roast beef, potatoes, kumara, pumpkin, peas, Yorkshire Pudding and gravy
Tea, coffee and large chunks of fruit cake will wash down your lunch.
You may then wish to visit the railway museum (on the platform) and wander down memory lane before it’s “All aboard!” for our return journey to friendly Feilding.
The trip will be hauled by a KiwiRail diesel locomotive.
