passengers stand in line to buy tickets at Rotorua station, circa 1930

The station was later replaced -- only a few years before rail passenger services ceased.  And, 21 years later, a couple of years before a rail passenger service was restored, that centrally located station was demolished and the land sold to developers along with the yard.  The new station was over 2 km away from the city centre...  In 2001 that passenger service ceased.

This is another illustration considered for, but not used in the new book New Zealand Railway Memorabilia
