In response to the news today of the mining tragedy on the West Coast of the South Island of New Zealand. I wanted to post captures of some of the things I remember of the place, in happier times.

Our thoughts are with the families and friends of the miners.

I choose this capture because this is what it is about, Coal. The coal train heads to Christchurch, the coal is to be exported.
