Review of 125 Years of New Zealand Steam - Steam on Parade DVD

125 years after the first train ran in New Zealand, steam returned to the rails in a big way with the Ferrymead 125 Celebration. The New Zealand National Film Unit was on hand to catch the action, and with rare footage from the national archives, put together this show, “Steam on Parade” for the 1988 festivities.

Ride the spectacular Midland Line, through the Southern Alps to Arthur's Pass. to the Glenbrook Vintage Railway and Featherston Fell Museum. More than 50 locomotives can be identified throughout this look at steam in New Zealand.
