In my day the Ngapuhi Flag Station consisted of the siding complete with goods shed and covered loading bay, by the waiting room and toilets. There was a raised platform and a loading ramp, the latter still standing being the only evidence left of the station.. There was a ganger's house nearby which was home to Charlie Banton and his family In my early school years I travelled to the Kaikohe Primary school on the back of the cream truck and returned home on the afternoon train. The fare was, I think six pence.. Later I went to Boarding school at Whangarei Boys High and travelled there and back by express train, there being no other option.
