Kingston Branch [2D]: Invercargill-Makarewa 4 (Lorneville 1)

Lorneville is the first major station north of Invercargill (7.46 km) on what was the Kingston Branch (Ohai Line today). It is significant for the activities associated with livestock. There is a major stock yard to the east side of the railway that formerly had sidings. To the west is the Alliance freezing works which is connected by a siding about a kilometre in length. These works are still in operation as are the sidings. The maps don't cover the works itself since I only have 2015 aerial photography of the whole site. These maps are 1964, 1974 and 2015.
