Taieri Gorge Railway Review

The Taieri Gorge Railway tourist train runs from Dunedin through the now-closed Otago Central Railway to Pukerangi and Middlemarch (home of the annual Middlemarch Singles' Ball; each year this very train imports young city gals up to a dance with lonely Otago sheep shearers). Also available is a seasonal Seasider route from Dunedin up the coast to Palmerston. The train runs every day; check the timetable for its destination. Reservations are essential. Cyclists can connect at Middlemarch to the wonderful Otago Central Rail Trail.
