Above right; The following day we took a ride out to the memorial at the scene of the Tangawai rail disaster, which occurred Xmas Eve 1953 when a flood off the surrounding volcanic plateau washed the bridge out. There is a sad story about a woman who died in this whose fiancee was touring South Africa with the NZ cricket team. After being told about the tragedy, he came out to bat in complete silence in memory of his dead lover.
