Waiting for the train?

Posted by
kiwisa (North Shore, New Zealand) on 11 May 2010 in Abstract & Conceptual.

Still on our cycle ride through the Karangahake Gorge, we came across these old cut rocks which looked like an abandoned car next to the old train track. Thought it would be work for Silly Tuesday:)
