Feilding Railway Station was situated on the Palmerston North to Wanganui Line. There was a large goods shed and water-tanks at the station and the local post and telegraph office was on the railway platform. Six trains passed Feilding daily during this period. The locomotive shown is an F class, designed and built in England for the Public Works Department from 1873 - 1921. They were the second biggest locmotive class in New Zealand, but only five served in the North Island, with all five being assigned to Wanganui in 1878.
