headed by Ja 1250 and dead J 1236 banked(assisted) by Da 1497 as
inconspicuous as possible - in the top shot I think Da 1500 had gone over in
a washout the week before. These are prints that were scanned to be posted
in due course (which are quite a bit sharper than my photos). Apparently
George Emerson is in the bottom photo - I was a mere schoolboy at the time
and hardly knew anyone on the train.



There'll be more of the day Wilson Lythgoe's scanned much better slides
taken in the area also - thanks Wilson

Correct TC, can trace an original motorized crossing loop back to 1938 as below, then resignalled in 1964 as a part of the introduction of CTC , then again in the 1980’s for electrification. …allan

Steve,



Manunui was the scheduled crossing place for 229 southbound Ltd and northbound 626/628 express for many years 1940's, 50's and early 60's.

Re: John Wallers Mystery Thursday

Thanks Trevor - yes noticed that the train is coming off a yard track 3rd on to a second track, so quite interesting as maybe the train was stopped to have a look at the tram across the road if still in situ (I can't recall). I don't think that Manunui was a crossing loop at that time.

Waiouru Triangle David? That's what I started with but I don't think so due to the curvature in the track. I think Manunui looks close in many ways but the railway seems to be on a curve but in the aerial and to my knowledge the track is straight. S Steve W
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Steve your Ef+Ef photo is at the same location.
The "curve" that 945 is on in the J Wallers pic is a siding, not the mainline.
The mainline and crossing loop are beyond 945 and look straight enough to my eye.

There's no chance of it being the second triangle at Waiouru, as both connections were directly to the mainline. The sidings at Waiouru are/were on the opposite side of the mainline

Attached is an extract from a JM Creber Manunui pic matched to the relative portion of the skyline in the J Wallers shot.

Re: John Wallers Mystery Thursday

Jenner, Ian
 

I agree with Trevor, Manunui heading north. The loco looks to be shunting in the yard as you can see the main & loop, & also points just in front of the loco. The line off to the right would be the one that crossed the road to Hutt Timber.

Re: John Wallers Photos

Stephen Wright
 

Hi there Bob,

That building was known as the 'Brick House' - now the Speight's Ale House'. Built in 1909 and later extended, it was a government building housing the Railways, Works,
Agriculture & Fisheries, Mines and Geological Survey departments. In the bottom floor were the workshop of the Railways Communication Branch, the telephone exchange and Railway administration offices.

Cheers
Stephen

I have attached a photo taken from the equivalent spot of where John has taken his photo (if in fact here?)

Is that a track leading to a triangle in the foreground (ought to narrow it down a bit) or to an 'industry' at right angles to the main line?
