The person standing in front of the engine is my Father Harold Stewart and the person on the footplate is his brother David Stewart. Both men were trained at the workshops. They were sons of J T Stewart  the person who surveyed the Manawatu/Rangitikei districts and laid out Palmerston North and other settlements. The Weka was refurbished at the Feilding workshop of Harold Stewart located in Beaty St. This photograph was taken in the northern goods yard of the Feilding railway station. A north-bound train can be seen leaving the station about to cross Kimbolton Rd. Photograph taken 1906.
