We recently had a very short stay over the weekend in Palmerston North, so I decided to make the most of the opportunity to check out a new rail location. Palmerston North's rail yard is nicely flanked by two road bridges that provide a nice point of view from both ends of the yard. This shot was taken from the northern end. The departure/arrival track in the foreground produced a very, very nice looking curve on which to plonk a train. Thankfully the electrification poles are on the opposite side of the track, not obstructing the train.
