I decided to go for a sunday drive
First test , the turn table..... not a problem then off up the hill, onward and upward
Through both tunnels without a hitch
and around the circle and looking back down to where we just came from
then further along can see down to the first horse shoe bend 300 feet below
The line is officialy 7.195 miles from station to station according to the NZ Railway & Tramway Atlas.
At least I can tick of the length bit of the "CHALLENGE" requirements:D, and so ends sunday with 53 of the 168 precious hours gone .
