Railcar excursions from Dunedin to Oamaru are proving
Tomorrow's second trip in three months by the Dunedin Silver
Fern railcar to Oamaru was almost full with 85 passengers
booked on the 94-seat railcar, Taieri Gorge Railway Marketing
officer Louise Burnside said earlier this week. Tomorrow,
three trips will also be run between Oamaru and Maheno, but
only a few bookings had been made for this shorter 45-minute
excursion, Ms Burnside said.
The Taieri Gorge Railway was considering basing the railcar
in Oamaru for several days for trips to Dunedin, but no
decision had been made about the dates for these trips, or
for other trips to Oamaru, she said.
