2:10 Rail to the rugby

It used to be that riding the rail was the most popular way to get to a big rugby match at Carisbrook Park. In fact the annual train trip from Invercargill to Dunedin for a 'Brook test is part of southern folklore, especially so since the Southerner service was mothballed and regular trains are no longer a feature of the region. So it's good news for die hard rugby fans that an Invercargill travel agent is resurrecting the iconic railway journey for tomorrow's Tri Nation's clash between the All Blacks and South Africa.
