Matangi Train on new inaugural fare paying run – Footage

Well, it arrives. The new Matangi train is not an urban myth, as footage below shows it on its first run ex Wellington 9.00am. Only two carriages, as was also expected.

Didn’t get onboard, but had a sneak peak inside from the outside. Got to laugh wondered why the door didn’t open, you need to press the button, modern.
