As a celabration of our retirements as of August 2007, Sandy and I took a 25 day cruise from Los Angeles to New Zealand and then another 2 weeks or so of land travel around New Zealand. We got around on motor coaches, and were we could, on the New Zealand national rail system, which is 42" gauge.
There was a total of four train rides on the trip, three of them on the south island and one on the north. Trip number 3 was a duplicate of trip number 1 but in the opposite direction so there isn't a lot of video from that one.
I also have video from a steamship ride on a lake at Queenstown. This fits here because it is a REAL steamship.
