Cattleyards Station (1964)

I have taken a momentary escape from the PNGL to map in Cattleyards station in Dunedin.
As seen here Cattleyards used to be on the 1870s main line which passed through the old Caversham Tunnel until a new deviation and tunnel were opened in 1910. The three industries were established at the site of the old station and had various sidings.
A closer view of the station area showing all the sidings. The freezing works is the only site still remaining and closed a few years ago, probably remaining today as coolstores, but without rail access.
One of the numerous White Aviation photos used to source the map.
