Trans-seasonal Vistas

A Toronto Star travel piece likens NZ’s famous TranzAlpine train journey to the Crowded House hit Four Seasons in One Day. Star: “In half a day, it travels from summer-like warmth in the farmlands to winter chill … as it climbs towards the alps, with flashes of spring and fall along the way, all played against a magnificent canvas of constantly changing geography.” The TranzAlpine’s four-and-a-half hour journey from Christchurch to Greymouth is frequently listed in the world’s top ten scenic train rides. 2007 marked the service’s twentieth anniversary.
