Labour Weekend 2008 at Keirunga
The weekend went really well with 22 visiting trains, from Auckland to Wellington and everywhere in between. There was a fantastic variety of trains, large, small, electric, petrol and steam driven.
The weather was great on Friday and Saturday, but even though we had cold rain showers on Sunday, the passengers were still coming. Monday was the busiest day of the weekend.
Our Club put on a great BBQ meal at night for everyone.
It was great to see everyone really enjoying themselves at Keirunga Park Railway and making use of the wonderful track that we have.
Thanks to everyone that brought their engines for the long weekend and we hope to see you back at Easter.
