WCWR and Lyell

Photos of the West Coast Wilderness Railway run from Queenstown to Strahan... An Abt rail system is needed as the gradient runs up to 1 in 16.
The area is largely rainforest. (So named for the persistent rain and the dense forest :-)
Do not adjust your sets at the color of the King River. The river was stained by iron sediment 100 years ago and will take a while longer to run clear again.
On the way to Macquarie Harbour the river merges with streams containing fresh water. The fresh water appears coke coloured due to the sap from trees in the rainforest but its good and rich in antioxidants.
