NZR Ab with a northbound passenger train on the Christchurch-Picton line, 1965


North of Wharanui in the area that was (and probably still is) known as the Blue Slip. The railway and road along the whole coast needed major works following the Kaikoura earthquake of November 2016. Scanned from an old calendar, original credited to B. Hutton.  For lots more like this, see the book New Zealand 1950s Steam in Colour
