Foxton 1950s

Foxton 1951

As an addendum to the posts on Foxton and on Kapiti transport, at top is a Railways Dept picture from 1949 of the end of the Foxton branch line which closed in 1959.

The detail from the Whites Aviation pic of May 1951 shows where it was at the north end of Harbour Street in relation to Main Street (on the left) and the Manawatu River which has since silted up a lot — as a result the big red shed on the edge of the river, which still exists, is now about 30 metres from it.
