Beyond the Taieri Gorge Railway.


After our visit to the Goldmine it was a hurried bus ride back to catch the well-known Taieri Gorge Railway back to Dunedin.

On the train back to Dunedin the Guard being a bit of a joker had a trick question for all the passengers on the train.  Derek being the only winner he received two souvenir pens in a holder, thank you very much.

The question: What was the Prime Minister’s name in 1960?

The answer: Exactly the same as it is now, he hasn’t changed his name.Open-mouthed smile
