Model T railcar....crazy!

Have you driven the steam engine? That could be a lot of fun. Or you might end up in the next train wreck article!
No I haven't driven the engine. I have been on the train quite often.
The station is the original but with an NZR authentic veranda built over the platform and the track. The goods shed is no longer there but is now a car park

The whole complex is run and maintained by a large group of very dedicated volunteers.

The video on the website is a very good one and well worth watching and show the veranda.

Nice video. I like the people at their parked cars waving as the train passes.

Love to see the train pictures. I grew up near White River Junction in the 60's and you could set your watch by the whistles. My grandfather was a conductor and then car inspector on the Boston and Maine for years. Glad to see they finally restored the old 494 and put it under cover.
Thanks for the memories.
