Paikakariki Railway Station
Paikakariki Railway Station, a wooden building containing station master's office, ticket lobby, general waiting-room, and ladies' waiting-room, has a substantial asphalted platform for passengers. There are two through trains each way every day; in addition to which a train starts for Wellington each morning, returning in the evening. A large engine-shed which will hold four locomotives has been erected to provide accommodation for the engines which are kept at Paikakariki, where all trains change engines.
