About this title

From the spectacular Southern Alps to the fertile dairy farmlands of North Island New Zealand is one of the most scenic and attractive areas on the planet. Of a roughly similar land mass to the UK, but with a population of only 4 million or so New Zealand doesn't support an intense rail network. However, it is a country full of contrast, as this unique guide which features plenty of wonderful scenery including stunning aerial views of Mount Cook and coastal scenery shows.

- Trunk services:- spectacular mountain and coastal scenery, the backbone of rail freight operations on both North & South Island that together with the inter island train ferry connect the major population centres of Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin.

- Milk trains:- one of the few places in the world that it's possible to see huge daily train loads of milk is the section of line to Whareroa on North Island.

- Commuter services:- Wellington & Auckland

- Passenger services:- The Overlander & the TranzCoastal.

- Christchurch:- a historic city that's big enough to feature a daily circular tourist tram service.

- The Midland line:- freight & passenger traffic on one of the most scenic railway lines in New Zealand, including a cab ride on the famous TranzAlpine passenger connecting Christchurch & Greymouth across the formidable Southern Alps.

- Steam:- contrasting mainline steam operations and the Weka Pass railway.

- Heritage travel:- the highly popular Taieri Gorge railway plus Pacific coastal action from Dunedin to Palmerston.

If you are planning a trip to New Zealand this DVD will prove an invaluable guide to both the railways and the magnificent countryside.
