Ranfurly's railway goods-shed is typical of many that served the railway lines of New Zealand. Alike as peas in a pod, this is identical to the one in the town where I grew up.
Behind the railway station on a back street, the buildings are not as well cared for as those on the main street.
A photo on an information board. Ranfurly was specifically built in 1898 as a railhead town. Now it is a pivotal point on the popular rail-trail bike track that follows the dis-established railway line through the Maniototo.
For me, walking around Ranfurly engendered memories of small towns in days gone by - hence the sepia tones ...
Typical small-town NZ street, with not a soul to be seen.
