Fodor's Review

The tiny town of Featherston is worth a stop for the Fell Locomotive Museum. Along with photos, models, and memorabilia, it has the last remaining Fell locomotive in the world; built in 1875 and expertly restored, the engine is one of only six that clawed their way up the notorious Rimutaka Incline on the way to Wellington.
