Waiau Branch : Waikari - 4B


The Waikari station building and platform in the 1960s. The white post was probably for a tablet exchanger as Tyers Electric Train Tablet was in use until 1971. The building is looking a little the worse for wear and was officially assessed in 1975 to be "beyond repair". It was sold in 1983 to a Christchurch resident for a nominal sum and removed.
