The train that runs between Wellington and Auckland.
They wanted to stop this service, but after an outcry from the public, decided to only reduce the number of trips. This move reminded the people of the train trip and it was sold out for months.
The trip takes about 12 hours. At the back of the train is a viewing window, very cool when crossing bridges.
At National Park. This is where we stopped for lunch.
Yes, that is a real volcano :).
One of the many rivers we crossed.
