Off the Rails

Off the Rails


There is one man in New Zealand still passionate enough about our rails and the country they roll through, to put words into action. A train buff himself, Marcus Lush heads OFF THE RAILS, venturing from Bluff in the south to Opua in the North, on a remarkable array of railways - coal, freight, steam, railcars, even a jigger or two!               

Relive his fascinating and entertaining journey - hitching, hiking and catching a ride on the work beasts still plying the rail tracks. As well as learning about the richness of New Zealand's rail history, meet amazing people along the way, with some personal insights into New Zealand's history and some of our famous - and infamous - characters. You can also enjoy the spectacular scenery of New Zealand on this epic journey of discovery.               

This is a compelling series for young and old alike!
