Waiau Branch [6]: Waipara 1990

In 1990 the main changes are that the yard has been reduced; there is now just the main, a longer loop and a public siding to the loading bank; the goods shed and triangle have been removed. Weka Pass Railway has opened their engine shed with three tracks. The connection between their yard and NZR has been formally converted into a private siding with a switchlock, recognising their establishment as a separate owner of the old Waiau Branch. At the south end all remaining parts of the Way and Works depot have been removed except for the relatively new main buildings which are now vacant. (This map uses 2015 aerial photography)
