Thursday's photo is a signal plus an all trains stop sign. So where did I
take this 21st century photo?

Re: Scans from Dunedin alias Loco Depot's ...

I understand, Linwood, Dunedin and Elmar Lane were biggest loco depots in the country, followed by Wellington, Auckland and Invercargill, then came
Wanganui, Palmerston North, Frankton Junction and Taumarunui.

Looking at the photo of Dunedin shed, in its heyday how many steam engines were stabled here. Looking at the size of the shed quite a number.

Hi all - remaining photos and a photo of what appears to be Ab 834. I'm not
