From the viaduct just out of Ohakune, see the old viaduct
This is real, wild railway country, surrounded by dense bush
Deep valleys where no roadway is seen . . .
Toetoe line the track
The North-South train crews cross over in the middle of nowhere
Back beside the road, the town looks broken up
But the old National Park sign still stands in good repair – 807m above sea-level
too cloudy to see Ruapehu!
Back into deep no-road bush valley
Raurimu Spiral – Pukerimu (half-way
down the spiral) and
An interesting little town – who lives there?
Down the Whanganui River valley
Curving around to
the train circled into the station
