Rollin Rollin Rollin, Rollin Rollin Rollin RAILFREIGHT!!!!!

Found that old ad on YouTube and in the Ngā Taonga Sound & Vision's archives
totally don't have it as a ringtone lol. At least you know who's phones ringin!
Pity the rail industry doesn't operate like this any more.

Anyhoo, since some of you are probably here from my YouTube uploaded rail videos, I have planned to visit Upper Hutt this coming Friday (Tripod and camera with me, of course).

Thought it was time to get some different scenery, as Tawa is getting a slight bit stale.

Of course I will have a Day Rover or whatever Metlink call them now (I think they're still called that). So hopefully with that I can get some shots at multiple stations! Pity the Ganz sets don't run anymore. Would be awesome footage from the front of the train!
With that said, I may have sent an email to metlink regarding cab rides... (Cab+Camera=interesting footage)
[EDIT] I've been informed by Metlink that due to "safety and driver distraction" cab rides are a no-go. Kiwirail on the other hand only says nope if there are tunnels, because of Pike river.

Whilst I haven't been given an answer yet, at least I get a response about the 'ticket' from someone within 24 hours, unlike KiwiRail's useless online form...
I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR A RESPONSE FOR TEN MONTHS NOW YA HEAR ME KIWIRAIL?! AND THAT WAS JUST THE FIRST BLOODY FORM I FILLED. GOT ANOTHER TWO MORE WAITING FROM APRIL AND SEPTEMBER... UNHAPPY IS HOW I WOULD NICELY PUT IT... Trust me you don't want to know what I would REALLY want to write...

It gave me an error when I tried it yesterday. Maybe they've blocked me! XD

Rant over *breaths deeply and calmly* 

 So, thanks for viewing what is more a rant than whats to come and I hope you enjoy it when it comes out!
