Sit back and enjoy the ride while Graham Hutchins takes you on a journey of discovery around New Zealand. In the style of Michael Palin, Hutchins describes a dozen unique train journeys, accompanied by many superb photographs of New Zealand's incomparable scenery. For tourists, the book will be a personal travelogue, in which the main features of the landscape, as seen from the train, are described as the journey unfolds; for railway enthusiasts, the book will be essential reading, including some little-known historical and technical information, a look at the lines we have lost, and with many exciting new photographs. The railway lines profiled in the book (from south to north) are: The Kingston Flyer The Taieri Gorge Railway The Seasider (Dunedin - Palmerston) The TranzAlpine Express (Christchurch - Greymouth) The Weka Pass Railway (Waipara - Hanmer area) The TranzCoastal (Christchurch - Picton) The Capital Connection (Wellington - Palmerston North) Wellington - Johnsonville Wellington - Wairarapa (Masterton) The Art Deco Express (Paekakariki - Napier) The Overlander (Wellington - Auckland) Auckland - Waitakere
