Steam train through Tawa

A special Kapiti Vintage 2012 train headed by locomotive Ja1271 went through Tawa on the morning of Saturday 11th August 2012, stopping briefly at Tawa Station. David Parsons had his wits about him and captured these shots at the time, all bar the last one.

Those who weren't on the ball heard but didn't see the train passing through, well at least not close up. The last photo shows, from a considerable distance, evidence of the steam train somewhere between Tawa and Linden Stations.
