Dunback & Makareao Branches : 1B


The OETT excursion to Makareao of January 1988 is here crossing State Highway 1 just north of the station as it turns inland onto the branch. In the distance you can see the DJ locomotive with just the far side of it, the boiler chimney of East Otago High School. These days, an old semaphore signal is located alongside the school entrance, but I do not know if it was the branch home signal or came from elsewhere.
