Hawera is my railfan Mecca.... its my hometown and also where I first discovered trains and the heady world of being a railfan in NZ, with all the constant changes within the system, back in the days when I knew very little about our nations railways, and often got lost in the excitment of visitng a different station not knowing what locos or wagons would be there, or seeing a loco for the first time...

Now I have to warn you that a lot of the photos in the upcoming blogs are scanned from poorly stored negatives on a cheap negative scanner, and are not the best in quality. I have most of the original prints in albums but all the "good" photos I used to swap with mates and its been a real blast from the past looking back at the negatives...

Nice shots! Thank you for taking the time to upload them. And no need to apologise for the quality. "Never mind the quality, feel the width!"
