On a recent Grand Pacific Tour of New Zealand, we stopped at Oamaruru in the South Island.
It was there I came across these locomotive remains, the locomotive had been tipped into the sea many years ago after it was withdrawn form service, it was recently recovered.
There is workshop there that belongs to the Oamaruru steam and rail society, they let me have a look inside the workshop.
They operate trains on the old line to the wharf, which is no longer used.
Paul’s pics reminded me of the train graveyard in Cuba (that post is here), which I found fascinating.

Quite sad to see them in such a state!
Keep ’em coming.
