I've had a copy of this guy's pictures from his world tour on my computer (well, series of computers) since 2002... haven't looked at most of them till now. He's got some awesome photos! Lots of pics of this cable car thing, not to mention some trams from Melbourne

Sounds about right...

Please post more!

The Wellington Cable Car is very photogenic, given its run through the Royal Botanical Gardens. Though if that picture you posted is any indication, Wellington sure as hell turned on the miserable stereotypical weather ...

Ah, good, I can still remember my Wellington geography!

It's just so bizarre how Lambton Quay is a few blocks back from the waterfront. Wellington must have been REALLY cramped for space back in the 1850s when it was actually a quay!

I love how you can't even see Eastbourne on the other side of the harbour.

For anyone reading back in the thread (or lurking ), yes, you have in fact entered Bizarro World. I am posting pictures of NZ trams, and shortly Axver will post pictures of rocks, complete with geological commentary.

I was just thinking "do I have any pictures of rocks?"

When I was little, I collected interesting rocks I found, had a basket full of them. Couldn't bring them to Australia though. Not sure if that was a customs thing or if Mum just said I couldn't.

Actually, I DO have pictures of ballast. Is that good enough, Ali?
