Hi Room 6,
We travelled on the train from Papatoetoe to Britomart and our train went on the Eastern line. It has the best view on the train. Keep up the great work

We think it is great having a train station in GI. My family have been able to travel to University on it every day and they don't get stuck in traffic jams. I agree that it is a real asset to our community.
