The Train




On Monday, Mom and I went on a train to Greymouth. We took a taxi to the train station and we had breakfast on the train. We went through 16 tunnels on the way and 16 tunnels on the way back. It was very dark inside the tunnels and the longest one we went through was 8km long. It took about 10 minutes to get through. On the way there, when we went through the tunnel it was raining, but not hard. At Greymouth, it was still raining and we had fish and chips for lunch. On the way back we went on the observation deck and when we went through the tunnels, it looked like it was going to hit us. It was fun going over bridges because you could look down and see everything. We stayed on the observation deck most of the time going back to Christchurch.

  1. I love trains! You get to see so much scenery through the windows. I have never been on an observation deck, though. That is a nice feature, but a little scarey going through tunnels. Not much so see there!
