Not Rakaia - interestingly I have a lot of old photos of this station and this particular area where this loading bank was found is hardly covered in the photos.

Fair enough Ross - unfortunately the only photo I can find of this structure, however this is at a well known station that was once a junction in the South Island.

I was wondering if anybody recognised this before issuing clues.

Given that there is so little in the shot to give a clue as to its location to get the ball rolling I'll say Rolleston.
