And the train conductor says "Take a break driver 8"

"... a speeding locomotive abandoned for years to the delirium of a virgin forest"

-- for values of "speeding" that include 6 mph uphill and 10 mph downhill.

In a surprise move the government has announced the upgrade of the Virgin Forest railway line. Minister for Railways and Such, Stephen Joyce declared "Whatever this is about, the government is committed to doing it. To head off any questions: I dunno."

the delirium of a virgin forest

So, am I right to assume that all the vegetation is hallucinogenic?

Sadly, in the 16 years since those photographs, Surrealism-hating busybodies from the Regional Council have tidied up the Rimutaka Incline site and rescued the bits of old locomotive from the forest... they are now on neat concrete plinths surrounded by Interpretative Plaques.

Speeding locomotive, let's speed some more
'Cause we don't need reason and we don't need logic
We've got feeling and we're dang proud of it
Speeding locomotive, there's nothing you can't do

Empirical Observation, my decomposing ass.

Milwaukee Law Firm and Absinthe Tattoo parlor shall be in touch forthwith, sirs. If I have to, I will send a vicious robot with a malfunctioning pneumatic system to visit.

You can just go back to BOC lyrics, you twisted lunatics.

Evidently Driver 8 (take a break) didn't reach his destination.

Those are PINE TREES, fish. You cannot deflower a gymnosperm.
Hmmm, bare nakkid seeds.
