7.5 Mag quake hits the South Island on NZ

Hi all.

The link below takes you to the Model Railroad page, with another link to the actual video of the Kaikoura coast line.

Letting a 7.5 Mag quake loose in real life

Enjoy isn't quite the right word really. Perhaps experience it.

Cheers,

Has anyone taken any pics.  I rode the line in 2009 and it is a beautiful trip.  I went from Christchurch to Picton with the ferry connection to Wellington.  Here are some pics of the trip.  The coast route is at the end starting with the sun rise pics. https://www.flickr.com/photos/jfrank65/albums/72157621976990674

Here are some pics I found on the internet.  It will be some time before rail and road traffic is restored.

The Kivirail site says the Tranz Coastal train is cancelled for the rest of the season.  Aug to May 2017.
