New look for old station

The old Waipukurau railway station, right, is getting a facelift.

Eleven members of the Conservations Corp are busy restoring the station. They started on the project last month and are expected to be completed by the end of the year.

The Waipukurau YMCA will occupy the station. Proceeds from the Waipukurau Little Theatre’s next show, Joyful and Triumphant, on September 29, will go toward the restoration project.

Photo caption – STAFF at the Waipukurau station had this photo taken before the January 7, 1954 royal visit. Refreshment room staff are seated in the front row on either side of the stationmaster.
