The Lothians: Iconic "Kingston Flyer" Steam Train For Sale (Again....)
The "Kingston Flyer" at full regulator, circa 1975 [Credit : New Zealand Railways Publicity] The iconic Kingston Flyer Steam Train, track, rail corridor, ancilliary equipment and buildings have again been placed on the open market at a virtual "give-away" price of NZD$2,500,000 (USD$2,133,000 or UKP£1,370,000) Kingston Flyer Sale Advertisement [Source : Trade Me] The two locomotives and carriages are truly priceless. Having been saved from imminent closure and dispersal a couple of years back by Mr David Bryce one hopes that a new and equally passionate owner can continue to keep this unique and historic steam train operating. The Original Route of the Kingston Flyer shown from Gore to Kingston via Lumsden, The New Zealand Government Railways line from Lumsden to Kingston in Central Southland, at 1,024 feet above sea level and the most inland place in New Zealand, had been opened in its entirety on the 10th July 1878.
