Off the Rails - Good as Gold (Episode 10)

Television (Full Length Episode) – 2004

PG
Parental Guidance

Marcus Lush travels from the vast Kaingaroa Forest to New Zealand's busiest rail junction (at Hamilton), in this instalment of his popular show about the country's railways. Along the way, he meets a legless train accident survivor turned motivational speaker; potter Barry Brickell and his 3km narrow gauge railway at Driving Creek in the Coromandel; and a collector with more than 2,700 rail related items. There's also a visit to Waihi. Transformed into a boomtown by gold and rail in the 1870s, it was home to the might and power of the Victoria stamper battery.

It’s nice to know you’re never too old to be amazed and surprised.
– Marcus Lush reflects on the stamper battery at Waihi
