About 30 train enthusiasts gathered during the glorious sunny day to take part in All Steamed Up in Lumsden.

Part of the Southland Heritage Month, participants gathered in the old Lumsden Railway Station to share memories and learn about rail-related heritage, before touring the nearby grounds to view relics of bygone days.
