Thanks Mike. A great little ditty!

The railway line through here is the Wairarapa Line, as the area is called Wairarapa.

The line goes from Wellington to Masterton. Once upon a time it continued on through to Woodville. Woodville also ran trains from Napier to Palmerston North, and on to Wellington (without having to go through/over the Rimutaka Ranges).

There may of been a link to Wanganui from Palmy, but not directly from the Wairarapa Line.

NO WORRIES M8! glad you approve of poems and ditties on your pics, looks like I will be going with 32 in the wee BOOK(let) when printed, although sponsorship is difficult, lot more to do in that feild yet-publishers don't wanna know for two reasons, 1..they're too busy! 2...they're not too busy, but would like a much larger client!

FUSSY BUGGAZ!

Get well, that's all you need to concentrate on, OKAY?
