trains depart Wellington, early 1970s

Whether the photographer was lucky or this was arranged is a matter of conjecture.  A double-headed Da-hauled train of containers on the Main Trunk and an Ew-hauled suburban train on the Hutt Valley line.

The old Welcome to Wellington sign can be seen on the lower level.  After the foothills motorway was opened in 1969 it ceased to be on the main entrance road and was removed after a short time.

For lots more, see the book Wellington Transport Memories.
