Palmerston North Gisborne Line [3B]: Gisborne City 2

Here are a couple of views of some of the sidings in Gisborne, many of which are now non existent.

Apart from these we also have the main yard, the sidings on the Makaraka Branch, the wharf sidings and the ones for the other stations in the area which will be drawn up in due course.

The first one shows Gisborne Junction, the old name for the Makaraka Branch junction. When the PNGL was built through in 1942, the main line went to Moutohora and the PNGL before then was a branch.
