bull train at Palmerston North, 1954

Along with Taranaki, Waikato is one of NZ's prime dairy farming regions. This is an NZR photo of Ka 944 at the head of a train of cars taking Waikato Rugby Union supporters south on 27 August 1954 to hopefully witness their team win the Ranfurly Shield.  Palmerston North was one of NZR's legendary 'Refreshment Stops'.
