While some of us were working and at school, others of us were being whisked off to Pleasant Point by Joan and John for a custard slice! Pleasant Point is a small country town 19kms inland from Timaru, famous for its little heritage railway. They all had a jolly good time. Early afternoon when I was home from work we went on an outing to the in-use Timaru Railway Station. It didn't inspire a desire to travel anywhere by train - somewhat shabby and dirty; in keeping with the worst picture one would have of dodgy train stations!
