A huge number of people turned out to enjoy the fun of riding on the trains for the 4 days over Easter 2013 with many visiting drivers with their locos from throughout the North Island. There were no incidents of the fiery variety despite the dry conditions, and the club's kitchen staff kept the visitors and workers well fed over the weekend.
Here's some photos from the weekend.
