Clearing the way

Photographer/videographer Geoff Mackley filmed KiwiRail today as they attempted to clear snow from the tracks from Arthurs Pass leading to Christchurch. It’s great fun, especially because snow is something we don’t see in Auckland.

As a side note, Geoff used to be a cameraman for 3News, and also shot photos of emergency scenes for a magazine I produced for the first company I worked for in New Zealand. He still shoots photos and breaking news videos, often with a bit of action. This work lead to his being featured in the Discovery Channel series, Dangerman.

In any case, I really liked this video.

Don't love snow, but do love TRAINS, so this is cool!

There's just something about a train…
