more forgotten world tour

Okahukura was our starting point for the railcart ride.

This eucalyptus tree looked quite lonely.






The town of Maitere was our destination and turn-around point for the cars.

turning around

Maitere was where a brick-making factory was set up to make bricks that lined the tunnels.
When the tunnels were finished, the owner decided to start baking bread.

I just love trains! I am always sad to see them not running anymore.
I joined in the link up too.

Wonderful photos! I would certainly love to take a trip like that and see that beautiful countryside.
I love the photo of the cow on the hill.

old trains are fascinating but going from brick making to bread making is a first for me
