Labour Weekend 2014
Despite Friday being rained off, and Monday of Labour Weekend closing early, the crowds turned up in force on the fine and warm Saturday and Sunday to enjoy the steam and smoke of Keirunga.
Visiting locos from Manukau, Kapiti and other clubs around the North Island helped bolster the array of trains taking the public for a ride.
Families young and old, some armed with picnics and birthday cake, arrived throughout the day to keep the station staff busy clipping tickets.
The team at Keirunga had spent many hours preparing the track, cleaning, clearing, painting and signwriting, and the track looked spiffing for the Labour Weekend meet. As usual, the kitchen staff kept everyone well fed.
Our international guests commented that they reckoned Keirunga was one of the top five tracks in the world - now that's saying something! We are very proud of our track and love having the fathers and grandads, mums and bubs, boys and girls of all ages, come along to check us out.
