passenger rolling stock in Wellington station, 1950


The first two lines on the left are electric multiple units, for the time being used on the Johnsonville and Paekakariki lines, while the others are lines of wooden bodied carriages are for supplementing the Paekakariki EMU trains at peak times and all the Hutt Valley services, pending their electrification.  A couple of steam locomotives can be seen shunting in the distance. Another photo considered for, but not used in the book Wellington Transport Memories.
