Hah, neat.

What I liked about Mt Smart Stadium when I visited for U2 was walking from Penrose station along the then disused Onehunga branch railway!

Glad to see that's now being restored. I understand they're going to put in a station for Mt Smart Stadium.
I'd noticed that the railway lines had been pulled up, it's good to learn they're just being relaid

Hence, many of my U2 concert pics look like this:



Here's an attempt to photograph a train from the Flinders Lane/Market Street intersection one night, proving my camera is fucking useless at night-time.

The stage design lent itself to pretty cool photography, actually

You can probably see Utoo, his wife, and I in that picture. If I'm not grossly mistaken, that's the first gig. I was inside the arms of the ellipse, between Bono and Adam's spot in the second row.

You're quite right, it is the first gig.

I should get the non-resized versions off my external hard drive and let you look for yourself

Yep, they're bringing that line back into service for both passengers and freight. Last passenger trains ran in 1973, so this is a pretty big thing in the railway community. I believe it's meant to be operational sometime next year, though I'm wondering where the fuck the extra rollingstock's going to come from.
