Ranked No.1 of 36 things to do in Palmerston North by Lonely Planet, taking a ride on the Esplanade Scenic Railway in Victoria Park is a great way to spend a lazy day with family and friends.

Established in 1969, the route was recently extended, making the round trip through a mix of native forest and manicured gardens in excess of 20 minutes.

This 60 minute production covers the starting of the locos, of which there are three in use, and the assembly of the trains.

We then head off with one of the crew to put all the warning signs out and complete a circuit unhindered by passengers.

We spend a good deal of time trackside – where every bend and curve provides a totally unique view due to the extensive amount of foliage present in the park.

Another ride to retrieve the signs provides an opportunity to film the train in action from on board, using some dramatic camera angles.

We finish off with the trains being tucked in for the night and the ceremonial like closing of the shed doors.

Both children and adults delight at the sight of the video camera, and interaction with “the video guy” is near constant and cheerful.

Filmed over two days in December 2011.

No narration or subtitles.
