Description

New Zealand is centered in the Pacific Ocean and is 2 islands separated by a very large river called the Cook Strait. These islands are known as the North Island and the South Island. In the South Island we go look at New Zealand’s 4th biggest city, Dunedin. This city is famous for its city heritage. Today we look at one of the main tourist attractions in the city. Today we ride behind Dunedin Railway’s Taieri Gorge Railway excursion train which runs from Dunedin through the Taieri Gorge to Pukerangi centered near Central Otago. The line travels through some spectacular scenery and passes through many narrow tunnels, climbs steep grades and crosses over high constructed viaducts. Dunedin Railways own and operate 6 DJ class diesel locomotives built in Japan from the late 1960’s and operate a variety of passenger carriages dating from the old wooden cars in the 1920’s, to the more modern and recently refurbished carriages built as far back as the 1930’s. These carriages used to be used on daily express trains. This is a basic guideline of the trip including highlights of the excursion, on board features and a look at the impressive Dunedin Railway Station built in 1906. This railway is one of the world’s great train trips. Take a look at Dunedin Railway’s website at http://www.taieri.co.nz/ for more information on their scenic train trips and bookings. Hope you enjoy this video and make sure when you’re next in Dunedin you get a chance to go for a ride on the Taieri Gorge Railway!
