The powers that be decided that Anniversary weekend was a great time to "stop the train service for maintenance". It was also a bad call on our part to catch a "Rail" bus.
We have two routes to Auckland on the rail. One, reasonably quick through Newmarket (about 35minutes) and the other taking a lot longer through Orakei.
Well, of course the bus went through Orakei stopping at every station and the trip took almost 2 hours.
I might also add that that we must have bounced on every bump and rut on the roads.
