Transport: Greymouth/Arthurs Pass to Hanmer Springs

Does anyone know of any transport options in getting from Greymouth to Hanmer Springs? We were wanting to get the train to Greymouth/Arthurs Pass and then head on to Westcoast and Hanmer Springs then back to Christchurch. I can't seem to find any that link up...help.

Coaster2 is on the money with his advice. I travel through that way often, and I would strongly recommend the Westport to Greymouth road. It's spectacular. I was through there last week.
