It was a bleak Friday when our Plein Air group visited the local historic train station at Waikino, Southern Coromandel. A few chose to sit on the wind-blown station platform while others huddled inside by the fire. The building is not the original one, but was trucked in from up the line at Paeroa years ago. A tourist train now operates from Waihi town to this station. This is a painting of the bullion store located beside the fireplace.
