Waitati 770% better than Mosgiel

Leonie Rousselot took this photo inside an ornate Edwardian carriage
of the Taieri Gorge Railway commuter train from Waitati to Dunedin on
Wedndesday, 18 March. The seated pair are Nick Prosser and Chris
Linsell, two of the 208 passengers who were counted arriving in
Dunedin (some alighted earlier: children heading to Sawyers Bay School
and the Dunedin Rudolf Steiner School at Maia). Two trains, with
evening return trips, were run on Walk to Work Day for commuters who
live out of walking range of the city. The train from Mosgiel had 27
passengers in spite of a population base about ten times greater;
'Blueskin News' hopes that the good people of Mollywood will try
harder next time.
