080425 Day 5 Hyde - Dunedin

Day 5 was our last leg of the Rail Trail. We biked from Hyde to Middlemarch (27km). Highlights of the final day's ride included views of the Rock and Pillar and Taieri Ranges, the Hyde Railway Disaster memorial, and dropping down into the Strath Taieri Plain. In the afternoon we ended our journey in true style by taking the historic Taieri Gorge Railway to Dunedin, which arrived in the city at 3:30pm.
The Taieri Gorge Limited train is Dunedin's prestige tourist train operating from the historic Railway Station.
Departing daily (except Christmas day) it takes you on a journey through the rugged and spectacular Taieri River Gorge, across wrought iron viaducts and through tunnels carved by hand more than 100 years ago.
