Telling tales from around the world

Train minutiae

Spent the day out at the Bush Tramway Club in Huntly, an hour and a bit south of Auckland. Very impressive club restoring, preserving and having fun with old trains. Their website is a bit dated (the guy who built it is also a locomotive driver and the club secretary – with no time to redo…) but there is lots of good info here. http://www.bushtramwayclub.com/

These are some details I came across. I’ll post some pictures of actual trains when I finally get through all my photos – but I just love these bits and pieces.
