Kawakawa Vintage Railway's Con- cert at the Station is set for January 29 from 3pm to 5.30pm. Bring your chairs and sit among the tracks and relax to the great performances on the station plat- form. Enjoy the great sausage sizzle provided by the Gabriel Club or have a meal at the Railway Cafe. Meantime, it's all aboard for the train which is running every day during the school holidays, rain or shine. The one-hour return trip, which departs Kawakawa at 10.45am, noon, 1.15pm and 2.30pm provides great value. The scenery, friendly staff, his- tory and nostalgic excitement of train travel all combine into a mem- orable outing for young and old. Ticketing is for all-day, so passengers can travel out and back on the one train to Taumarere, or spend an hour or more at Taumarere and travel back on a later train. Walk across the historic Long Bridge and have a picnic or barbe- cue (bring your own food) at the delightful Taumarere destination, where you can also browse through the history of the area displayed in the old station building. For anyone wanting to absorb the ambience and nostalgia of train travel, the Railway Trust is anxious to increase its volunteer staffing base, particularly firemen, but guards, drivers and sales staff are also needed. Operations manager Mike Bradshaw will provide the necess- ary on-the-job training. Call him on 021-171-2697. Beach users urged to watch out for others Speedy: Kite surfers are asked to give swimmers a wide berth. Fly a flag if you fish and plan to use a torpedo or kontiki at the beach this summer. And if you're a kite surfer, put plenty of space between you and swimmers. Those are the safety messages Te Hiku Community Board has for Far North residents and holiday-makers. Board chairman Dennis Bow- man says fishing torpedoes and kontikis are great inventions that allow people to fish up to 900 metres from the beach. But using them to tow fishing lines beyond the breakers at popular swimming beaches dur- ing summer may result in injur- ies to other beach users if simple safety precautions aren't fol- lowed. The board asks torpedo and kontiki users to: Not launch the motorised, propeller-driven devices within 100 metres of swimmers, surfers, body boarders and boats or where people are gathering shellfish Fit them with an orange flag so people in or on the water are alerted to their whereabouts Stay with their fishing line at all times to minimise the chances of swimmers or other beach users becoming entangled in the line. It also asks kite surfers to observe a 100-metre exclusion zone near swimmers. Kite surfers have been observed surfing at excessive speeds near swimmers,'' Mr Bow- man says. People who fish at swimming beaches, including Tokerau and Rangiputa, are urged not to leave fish frames and offal on the beach because they attract stingrays and sharks. We don't want to spoil anybody's fun or day at the beach. We're just asking people to exercise a little common sense and show consideration for other beach users.''
