Flag-station, West Coast

New Zealand’s rail network once featured more than 1350 stations, even if many of them – like this flag-station at Inchbonnie on the West Coast – were little more than weatherboard shelter sheds. Flag-stations earned their name from an early American practice of stopping approaching trains by waving a flag. Today, fewer than 100 railway stations survive.
