The article reports on the success of the Taieri Gorge Railway field trip in New Zealand. According to the author, the structure was completed in 1891 and is part of the Central Otago Railway. Stops at many places allowed photographers and passengers to walk to nearby sites of interests such as the Flat Stream locality where the remains of the village were still visible. Jill Hamel and Peter Mason contributed to the trip when they explained matters of archaeological interest and some of the place's mining history.
