    The return of an acclaimed train route is expected to be a big boost for the West Coast

    The return of an acclaimed train route is expected to be a big boost for the West Coast


    The TranzAlpine scenic rail service - which runs between Christchurch and Greymouth - will set off today for the first time since its Covid-19 closure.

    Greymouth Mayor Tania Gibson has heard it's booked up for the school holidays - which is a very good sign.

    She says hopefully it brings in lots of tourists to help support local businesses.
