Flood Damage in the Taieri Gorge and Subsequent Suspension of Taieri Gorge Train Services.
The following information has been received from Nikki Ford, Sales and HR Manager Dunedin Railways:
"Firstly, we’ve suspended the Taieri Gorge daily trips as a result of several large slips over the track caused by the torrential rain we had the other weekend. We’ve got engineers coming out this week and our track gang working as fast as they can to get them cleared." (note edited)
