The TSS Earnslaw, built in Dunedin, 1911, then dismantled, and railed, as a kitset, to Kingston at the southern end of Lake Wakatipu where she was rebuilt and launched in 1912. She was then in service with the New Zealand Railways for 57 years, transporting cargo, sheep and passengers to the high-country stations that bounded the lake.
I have fond memories sailing on her, while still in NZR service, as a youngster and was very pleased to be able to rekindle those memories.

Yeah, Lutz, it’s an amazing bit of kit, and it’s great to be now able to get right into the engine room. It’s also popular, and I found it hard to get an uninterrupted video; and it might be because I’m a getting to be a bit of a dinosaur, but I was surprised by the number of young ladies who found also it fascinating.

Cheers, the Bear. Icon_e_smile

Hey Bear, if you're going to be interrupted, young ladies might be the best interruption you could have.

I find it hard to disagree Wayne, but I 'm quite sure that Her-in-Doors would not see it, that way.  Nope Icon_lol Icon_lol

Yeah, I'd get the same reaction here, too, but surely SWMBO knows that young ladies wouldn't be interested in "old guys" unless we looked like we might have some serious cash....I wouldn't know how to even fake that, never ever having had a surplus of dough.
