Waiau Branch [7]: Waipara 1995

This is pretty much the way Waipara is today. The main changes since the previous photos (the date 1995 is an approximation) are in the removal and replacement of the passenger platform and station for the Coastal Pacific Express, and the erection of the Weka Pass Railway carriage shed with its attendant and companion sidings alongside. To reach these sidings an extra piece of land formerly part of the Rural Fire Brigade HQ has been acquired.
