Otago Central Railway [36A]: Ngapuna 2

When I did my post on Ngapuna I forgot to put in the aerial photo of the site. This was taken in 1966.

The main road in front of the station, Ngapuna Road, was actually State Highway 87 until at least 1978. The supposedly isolated location of Ngapuna today wasn't accurately reflected at the time it was open, because it was next to what was then the main road.
