Arthur's Pass, New Zealand

Arthur's Pass township was reached by the railway in 1914, while the Westland section having advanced to Otira. Construction of the tunnel was very slow. The tunnel was finally completed in 1923. The TranzAlpine Express passes through Arthur's Pass and the Otira Tunnel as part of its 223 kilometres (139 mi) trek from Christchurch to Greymouth. The trip is regarded to be one of the world's great train journeys for the scenery through which it passes. (from Wikipedia)
