On the 19th and 20th of August 2017 was the Otorohanga Steam Fest.
Two days of steam and vintage displays and of course trains.
The weather for the weekend wasn't the best especially with heavy rain, thunder and lightning.
However the event went well, with many train excursions between Otorohanga, Te Kuiti and Te Awamutu
The first train of the weekend was diesel hauled as the steam excursions sold out fast so it was added to allow more people to enjoy a train ride.
A highlight of the weekend was the races between the Train, Vintage Cars and a Helicopter (it was supposed to be a plane but the weather didn't allow).
A video is in the works and should be up in a few days.
