Glaciers to Christchurch

To-day I'll continue my trip across New Zealand, departing the glacier country, passing first by coach to Greymouth (pray for the lost miners and their grieving families), then back across the Alps to Christchurch on the TranzScenic train via the tunnel under Arthur's Pass: it should prove a very pleasant route.

Amusingly, I was told when visiting the Transalpine Redemptorists in Christchurch back in 2009 that they often got phonecalls enquiring about booking seats on that train!
