Railway at Oakleigh, Northland

Photo Restoration - Train Oakleigh

Graeme Byles from Oakleigh, south of Whangarei, NZ, dropped in to have this photo tidied up and re-printed. It shows a train running where State Highway 1 is now located, south of the Caltex Service Station at Oakleigh. Graeme thinks this was taken around 1925 and the railway line was supposed to run to Waipu. But the officials decided to tear it up and build a road instead.
