Tranz-Alpine Railway from Christchurch to Arthur’s Pass

We all piled into the bus at the hotel and made our way to the station.

Christchurch Station

When we got there, our tour director Lu got our tickets for us and then we were able to wander about and get on the train. There is an open carriage, which is where I spent most of my time!
