It is actually a trip I have made several times part way (to Arthurs Pass), but this was the first occasion I completed the journey. No matter, however, how many times you do the journey, one never tires of the ever changing scenery, which just keeps those videos rolling and cameras clicking.
Add to this an amazingly funny commentary (depending on who the host of the day is), and you have a world class train trip (of which I have done many), in the space of one or two days.
An overnight (or longer) stay in Greymouth makes the journey all the more endearing.
