Memorial Locomotive Ab608 Passchendaele

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:20 pm on 23 October 2014

What may well be one of the highlights of the World War One commemorations is currently steaming its way across the North Island's railroads. It's the fully restored locomotive Ab608, which in 1925 was given the name Passchendaele, in memory of New Zealand railway workers who died in the Great War. Simon catches up with John Bovis from the charity Steam Incorporated.
