    Very curious how the person taking the video was able to stay ahead of the train.
    Awesome video.

    Interesting video Dave. Thanks for sharing. Honestly, a train was not what I expected from the title. The Spanish word for “crazy” is “loco”, and here in the U.S., the word loco is commonly used in that way. I expected to see some people going crazy in the snow!

    For those who are already booked on the NZ Tour and for those still considering rest assured that the locomotive pictured is clearing the tracks – there are no passengers. This is a safety measure which is undertaken if there is heavy snow.

    We are looking forward to seeing our visitors in September – both those who are on the organised tour and those who are travelling independently. If the latter group want advice on shows and other events or “mustsee” places please let us know.
