Also, Ian, I'm currently procrastinating by working on an LJ entry about New Zealand transportation. Though it may not be entirely to your liking as my proposal would decimate parts of the regional New Zealand flight network. Certainly not all of it, but for example I'd largely replace air travel between Auckland and the Bay Of Plenty with rail, simply because a proper rail upgrade European-style would be quicker than flying.

There really is no reason besides a lack of political will that you can't board a train at Britomart and be in the centre of Tauranga 1.5 hours later.

OK, I'm about to start on cooking dinner, so posting frequency will slide. But I'm certainly good for a solid picspam after 9pm. Sure, I should do uni work, but I SHOULD do a lot of things in life.

It sounds like a good idea to me. Auckland Airport isn't exactly congested, but eliminating small, regional flights in favour of rail is fine.

It ought to be done like in France, where Air France are part of a high speed rail system that runs from De Gaulle Airport (i believe) - so you go to the airport but catch a train from there instead of flying.

In fact, that's precisely what I envisage for the Rotorua route in particular. Run it by the airport so that all the international tourists hop off a plane and board a train bound for Rotorua.

The European experience indicates that train routes up to about 3 hours in length are competitive with air, and with increasing delays from additional security measures at airports, that's beginning to blow out to 4 hours (probably not applicable to New Zealand's lack of domestic security, though). So I don't see rail as being able to seriously capture Auckland to Wellington, but why the hell is anybody flying from Christchurch to Oamaru and Dunedin or Napier to Wellington? Only because there isn't the political will to upgrade the railway lines to high speed standard.

Maybe this will be some incentive to get some more of last year's holiday pics on PB...

Had a bomb scare at work today! At least it wasn't raining.
