Waiau Branch : 3C


The two bridges that are on the Weka Pass Railway are both near Waikari (if you exclude the buried viaduct a little further down the line). In this view looking towards Waikari we can see the Archers Stream bridge No.1 and the overbridge No.2. At the time this photo was taken, around 1988, the line had been closed for some months due to poor track conditions. It was eventually reopened in 1999.
