Huntly & Rotorua, New Zealand, 22 September 2010
Heading down to the hydrothermal delights of Rotorua, called in at the Bush Tramway Club at Pukemiro Junction near Huntly.
This was probably the neatest preservation site I have ever visited and although no one was in attendance, it was open for the casual visitor to walk around, although obviously most of the equipment was locked away in sheds.
This is the unusual New Zealand combination of Climax and Heisler, built by A&G Price in 1923.
I can only describe Rotorua as one of the natural wonders of the world. This is one of the lakes in the Waimangu Valley, which dates from the explosion of Mt Tarawera in 1886.
