Wedderburn as seen in April 2016. On the right we can see the concrete edged passenger platform and on the left, a high level loading bank. As the goods shed can be seen in the distance, this neatly illustrates that the station buildings in their present location alongside the road are some distance from where they were placed when the railway was open.
Clyde with the freight shed to the left and the loading bank to the right, the 215 km peg is alongside the far end of this bank. The water tank on the end of the freight shed dates from NZR days and is a standard pattern for "modern" water tanks (vats) that were made out of steel panels that bolted together.
At the end of the rail trail this subway was installed as part of the rail trail recently to allow pedestrian and cyclist access under the highway due to the hazards of crossing above.
At Bridge 70, Manuherikia No.1, maintenance work was underway at the time.
Ranfurly still has many of its old railway buildings, this is probably a way and works depot then next to it are trolley sheds, then further on is the station building and goods shed. And further south there is the old engine shed and the turntable as well on private land alongside the track. When the trail was first opened Ranfurly still had most of its track in the yard and an old DJ locomotive was kept in the goods shed. In the intervening years the track has been reduced to a length along the platform and the DJ was moved to Middlemarch to be kept as spares for the Dunedin Railways fleet.
Ngapuna is the first station after Middlemarch. The station building was removed in NZR days (the station closed in 1979 some 11 years before the line was closed), it has been found and relocated back since.
Tisdalls Ballast Pit between Ngapuna and Middlemarch. This was closed in 1934 having been opened when the line was under construction.
I will post some more Streetview shots later today.
