We did the winter trip, a day trip that loops from Taumaranui through 10 tunnels and includes lunch at the 'Prison Cafe'. This was a great way to see the countryside - surprisingly relaxing and the friendly guides seemed to enjoy it as much as we did. I was glad I wore a warm jacket (as advised when we booked) as the weather was sunny but you catch the breeze at times in the open spaces. We did this as a family with 2 teenagers - and the 16 year-old enjoyed his turn as a driver. It's good to see the rail line being used in this innovative way.
