This was one of the highlights of our trip. I was expensive for a family, but we saved for it and found it well worth the expense. The lunch boxes were pretty ordinary, but we weren't there for the food! The scenery was breathtaking, and the commentary informative, giving us a good idea of the massive effort that went into building the railway. We loved the steam locomotives on the rack & pinion section of the railway (yes we had a real treat with TWO locomotives as one was on its test outing after being rebuilt). In this age of good roads and reliable vehicles, it is sometimes hard to appreciate just how vital the railway was as a way of keeping in touch with the rest of the world in places like Queenstown. I'd heartily recommend this railway trip to anyone - save up if necessary and you won't be disappointed.
