A special Easter Weekend 2008
Easter Weekend at Keirunga was fine and warm, and four wonderful Autumn days saw many hundreds of visitors to the track to enjoy the steam, diesel and electric locos from all around the North Island, including Rotorua, Wellington and Manukau. The Lions of Havelock North and Mr Whippy were in attendance to feed the visitors, and the playground delighted our younger visitors, along with picnics and rides. Special visitors on Easter Sunday included delegates from the Model Railway Convention being held in Napier over the weekend.
Here are some photos of the weekend's activities:
