Rail-it wrote:Both are wrong and right! One speaks about a platform, one speaks about a signal box, but Wiri staion includes both.
The limits of Wiri staion is all lines within the outer most points or fixed signals on each main line under the direct control of a signalperson at Wiri.
So Wiri station covers basically the area from the Up Home to the Down Outer home siganals there(without being to technical).
I think he just meant to say why haven't they removed the old platforms.

There are still a number of old platforms in existence, including
Old Panmure Station
Old Manurewa Station
I would personally be keen to see the removal of the old island platforms (Tamaki, Panmure, Southdown and Wiri) to allow for the track to be realigned slightly. It would also remove the possibility of toetoe growing in the middle of the old platforms, which makes them look hideous.

Who wants to see all this eye sore all the time onto the way to work/school...not many I guess.
