On our way to Queenstown we passed a sign, just at the start of Lake Wakatipu
which read 'Kinston Flyer'.  Thinking that that sounded trainey, we headed down the road for a little look and found something that we think you'll love.

The train was ready to depart from the Kingston Flyer train station, with smoke billowing everywhere, and some poor sod's head was stuck in the exhaust pipe getting very mucky.  We took some pics and video for you, and even managed to sneak into the engine room for an engine picture...  Pics are attached - we hope you enjoy.


Today we visited a little steam ship called TSS Earnslaw, not only did we get some great pics and video of the ship coming in, going out and at dock, we also managed to get Kenny the engineer to take us into the engine room and take some pics, he even went down below in to the 'authorised personnel only' bit to take some engine pics for you - and it was so hot in the engine room - over 42 degrees (and smelly).  Debs snuck into the lobby for an indoors pics for you too. 

Hope you enjoy - pics are attached xxx
