Kingston Flyer

After visiting Queenstown in 1980, I was looking forward to driving around part of lake Wakatipu to Kingston to meet up with the legendary Kingston Flyer.
I've always were interested in trains and in my haste I forgot about that many trains and train lines were only a memory those days.
The train used to run between Lumsden and Kingstone in the summer holidays.
On my inquiries I was told that I can catch up with it at Invercargill, where it "runs around a rubbish tip".
You can imagine my haste to drive to Invercargill to catch the 'Flyer', before it flies into oblivion altogether as many other memorable trains.
I did get a surprise, the Flyer was running and I managed to catch it and it was running from Invercargill to Bluff Station.
Whether there was a rubbish tip in between, I do not know, and frankly, I didn't really care.
