South Pacific Steam Safari Volume 2 [Keith & Nancy Southern] (Viking Record Company VP 357, LP, NZ, 1971)

The Raurimu Spiral
An Engineering Masterpiece

This recording brings to you all the sounds and excitement of this drama packed ascent on Easter Sunday 1972, by Ja1236 and Ja1250.

Side one opens with the special travelling at speed, having just passed Raurimu Station to start the long tortuous climb up to National Park which is finally reached at the conclusion of side two.
