kingston flyer - train history


the so called 'kingston flyer' is a must for fans of old steam trains. until the mid 50s it was operating between kingston at the southern shores of lake wakatipu and gore as a regular passenger service. nowadays it's mainly a tourist attraction and operates between kingston and fairlight, 14km of pure train history.
