Very well designed new carriages - very comfortable, beautifully air conditioned, pleasant café-bar with decent food at reasonable cost, huge windows, excellent observation car and friendly staff. Our single journey from Christchurch to Greymouth started in mist which soon cleared and then we enjoyed beautiful weather which allowed some stunning scenery to be seen at its best. Commentary, if you chose to use it, was interesting and informative. This journey was another highlight of a wonderful trip to New Zealand as was the sister journey on the Coastal Pacific train.
