From Morning Report, 8:35 am on 5 December 2017

Opportunity could be knocking in Dunedin with The Hillside Workshop in Dunedin is poised to surge back into life to refurbish 31 luxury rail carriages. The railroad workshop was controversially shut down five years ago after KiwiRail contracts were sent overseas. Now, with the launch of the Antipodean Explorer, which will travel from Auckland to Otago, jobs are set to make a comeback.
