The TranzAlpine is a feat of engineering that allows people to traverse through one of the most scenic, but uncompromising landscapes in our country. It winds its way through Te Tiritiri-o-te-moana the Southern Alps, along 223kms of track, through 15 tunnels, and over four viaducts. One of the tunnels is 8.5kms long and one of the viaducts is 72 metres high.

Trains are big, heavy and fast. Use Science in Motion to help students think about science concepts such as friction, forces and energy.
