Christchurch to Picton passenger train stops at Kaikoura, February 1987
At the time this was one of NZR's celebrated 'Refreshment Stops'. The luggage van and the first three cars are in Southerner (Christchurch to Invercargill) livery. Today the station is the base of Whale Watch, the train is now the upgraded Coastal Pacific and the Dj locos are history. For more, see our books.
