It started off in the 1970s as The overnight Silver Star. I used to have a lovely trip up to my aunt and uncle in Auk. Set off from Dunedin to Christchurch on the Southerner, catch the overnight ferry from C.church. to Wellington, have day in that wonderful city, where I once met a young Winston Peters, then caught the 'Star to Auk.The single cabins had a trick where once you shut the door, you pulled a handle and a sink and toilet came out. Unfortunately it was a big loss leader and when Rodger Douglas did a 'Beeching' and slashed the railway, particularly in the South Island, it eventually became a daytime service and refurbished into what it now is

The fight from Auckland to Queens town is fantastic, then train at Arrow town.

Taking the South Island as a whole, it's probably the mist beautiful place on Earth

Well there's an awful lot of the world I haven't seen but it's certainly the moody beautiful place I've been.
