Probably one of the most inspiring layouts I have seen.

Best pronounced in Maori or New Zealand English I was reminded of this layout after reading an RM Web thread on the African Cape to Cairo.

I was gobsmacked when I visited this layout during a convention in 2010 (before the earthquake), not knowing what to expect with the seemingly corny name.

The layout features a typical Central North Island settlement in the early 1900 with realistically modelled Central North Island bush (native forest) which extends in some places from floor to ceiling and includes models of specific New Zealand tree species, the builders main interest, the moving train merely gives movement to the scene.
