NZ Rail…….

So early Sunday morning staggering half awake down to the railway station in Wellington, searching for coffee…..
The train is a very quiet comfortable ride. Left on time and arrived on time, something that never happened when I used to ride the rail in the early 1980’s.

These were on the platform at Palmerston North, the first stop. I was starting to wake up by then.

So a light airy carriage/car on the train and behind us was an open air carriage and 2 ahead was the cafe car.
