The long distance train in Te Maunga, Tauranga

When I'm at work there's a train that rattles past 2-3 times a day, at night when I'm walking out to my car around 5.30pm it goes past again and last night I managed to catch it - this one was loaded with many wooden logs.  Since it's winter here we've been getting cold cold nights and sunny days - this shot I caught a sunbeam directly in my camera lens.

This one is when it had gone past, the track goes for quite a long distance through the countryside via several towns and includes the bridge in Tauranga city itself near The Strand.

Nice shots. I hope the train doesn't create much noise in the surrounding housese.
