Dunedin Railways is a major tourist attraction based out of the 114 year old railway station in Dunedin city, that operates excursion trains through the spectacular Taieri Gorge and along the Pacific Ocean north of the city, which is known as the ‘Seasider’.
Due to Covid-19, but mainly to do with an unmotivated and short-sighted board, the railway company is facing closure with over 50 employees facing redundancy at the end of June 2020.
This music video covers scenic highlights along the Taieri Gorge Railway, and also special charters and events that have been hosted by Dunedin Railways in the last 5 years, some in conjunction with other mainline heritage rail groups in New Zealand.
An attempt to stop the board’s awful decision has been created through Facebook, with the page ‘Keep Dunedin Rail Rolling’, please go and like the page and help sign their petition, as an effort to stop this iconic piece of railway operation from being ceased forever.
