Railway Worker (NZ short film)

Further to my earlier post regarding NZ on Screen, here's a link to Railway Worker -- a must-see for those still caught up in the passion of rail. From the synopsis:
"This documentary follows 24 hours of work on the railways. It was directed by New Zealand’s first female film director. It shows the engines and commuter trains preparing to leave Wellington, and the overnight train arriving from Auckland. Workers toil on the railway lines above the remote Waimakariri Gorge, and the town of Otira gets ready for a dance. The final shots are of an engine coming through the dawn and back to the city."
