Fiat railcar about to enter the Arthur's Pass tunnel, mid 1970s

It has just crossed the Bealey River at the highest point of the South Island railway network with the Arthur's Pass township visible in the background.

As those who have the book On the TransAlpine Trail know, these ran on the Christchurch-Greymouth route between 1956 and 1978; in the earlier part of this period they also ran south of Greymouth.  (Roy Sinclair pic)
