Rotorua, New Zealand, 23 September 2010

Photographs cannot do any justice to the sounds and smells that are part of the Rotorua experience.
Boiling mud ponds are fascinating.

These geysers are in Rotorua itself.

After a fascinating day, I travelled up to Ngongotaha, just outside Rotorua, to visit the Rotorua Rail site. Here I found a wonderful vintage John Fowler and a quintessential New Zealand bush 'lokey' conversion.

This is part of half of one of the duplex Andrew Barclay locomotives that were supplied to bush tramways.
