The Southerner Express has travelled between Christchurch, Dunedin and Invercargill Daily for over 30 years and now this important part of the South Island Railway Network is no longer with us. The Southerner ran for the final time on Sunday 10th February 2002.
This page and the pages that follow are dedicated to the memories of the train, the train staff and the passengers who rode on on The Southerner throughout it's 30 years on the tracks
This website is a reminder of the train we have grown to love and the line it runs on. This is a tribute to our railway, our train, OUR SOUTHERNER!!!
Long may the memory of this train that has served its Passengers so well live in our minds and hearts.
