Train on Ohinemuri bridge heading for Waihi

The train on the Ohinemuri bridge is heading for Waihi. In front of the engine can be seen the post which will hold the Advance Starting signals. They will indicate to the driver which line the signal refers, the top arm the main line and the bottom, the branch. In the distant left, the home signal post, the signals guarding the Junction points, top arm main, and bottom, branch. These will disappear when the new signals are in use on 23 September 1912. Note the wires attached to the bridge. There are eight in all, sox for the new signals and two for the present home signals. These latter two will be removed when the new signals are in use. (Auckland Weekly News, 12 September 1912)
