Waitakere Tramway and MOTAT Auckland, New Zealand, 26 September 2010

On our last day we travelled on the Waitakere Tramline Society's line. This also operates on a Watercare railway but is run by volunteers and dates to before the introduction of the 'Rainforest Express'. This was more enjoyable because it was more relaxed, the carriages were a little more open, and the scenery on the whole better, even though the line is shorter.


Following this trip we called in at MOTAT on our way to the airport. I knew it was to be the inauguration day for Wellington double decker tram 47 but additionally a huge range of trams was in operation (as was the train).
