Hamilton’s Secret Underground Rail Station (+Photos)
Neither, actually but something far more exciting.
As pressure grows for a Waikato-Auckland train service, here’s where the Hamilton stop should be.
Right under the Centrepoint shopping centre right smack dab in the middle of Hamilton’s central city.
It’s a no-brainer. These photos show what was Hamilton Central station but as you can see it’s not been in use since 1995 as a passenger train station. It ‘s within 300 mtrs walk from Victoria Ave, Fonterra offices, Hamilton City Council and many other larger Hamilton offices. It is about 1km from the present Hamilton (Frankton) station.
Campaign For Better Transport and Hamilton Trains NOW!’s Jon Reeves (left) and Melissa along with some Hamilton City Council staff visited the underground station platform to see the current state of it.
Let’s organize a working bee, get it spruced up and get that Silver Fern service to Auckland moving!
