This piece was written in 1991 for Ann Saslav. It is based on an imaginary scene from years ago when a railway branch line went through native bush in the Catlins area of NZ. The motif at the start is a bird-call the composer heard in the area, and it is juxtaposed against the slow movement of a steam train against a bushy backdrop.
Commissioned by Isador and Ann Saslav
