2nd Dec 18 - Gisborne

Went on a trip on the Gisborne City Vintage Railway.

Joined the train at the port where the tenders from the ship arrive
Surely the only railway line that goes across a working runway.  We waited whilst this airplane landed. Then it waited for us to cross before taxing to the terminal. Amazing!
I was standing at the very back of the last carriage so got this view as we crossed hre bridge.
Gisborne was the first place that Captain Cook set foot in 1769 guided by Kaiti Hill yu can see in the photo. Gisborne also labels itself as the Chardonnay Capital of New Zealand. 
We were treated to a cultural show by the children of the local school. This little girl really caught my eye!
WA165 was built in 1897
Of course, I couldn't miss the opportunity to get on the footplate!
