Labour Weekend 2013 at the KPR
The Hawkes Bay put on fabulous weather for the four days of Labour Weekend, with only a light shower appearing about 3 pm on Monday.

As usual the Keirunga track was looking amazing, with recent working bees helping to make sure the track was in tip top condition. Locomotives and drivers were present from as far away as Manukau Live Steamers in Auckland, and Hutt Valley Model Engineers, Kapiti, Tauranga, Palmerston North and Hamilton.
Hundreds of visitors came for rides, and the ladies in the kitchen kept the drivers and their support teams well fed and watered. The track staff clipped the tickets and despatched trainload after trainload of passengers, and various teams manned the signal box and provided track and maintenance support.
Thanks to all the Keirunga club members for providing yet another wonderful weekend, and to all the public who turn up to support the track by taking rides on our trains.
