Waiotira Junction

  May 2016

  Waitira is where the Dargaville Branch Line meets the North Auckland Line
 163 km north of Auckland - by road


  The above picture ( on google maps ) was taken from the road bridge over the old Station looking North.
  Visible are 3 tracks one well maintained, 2 in use and 3 broken.
  On the left is a long platform edge.  On the right a flood light pole. In the distance a red signal light for the line to Dargaville.
  This a "google street view" so you can turn the view around.
  This is a Rail station just waiting to be used.
  One idea is to establish a Fertiliser depot here for the farming region.
  A place like this needs a local freight operator with a truck and hiab and forklift then any freight can go on/off the rail.
  I dont know if logs are here.  What about road building materials ?
