Otago Central Railway [63Q]: Ranfurly-Alexandra 17 (Ida Valley-Wedderburn 2): Ida Valley Ballast Pit

Ida Valley Ballast Pit is located near the 95 mile peg of the Otago Central Railway between Ida Valley and Oturehua. It was open only during the construction era – between 1903 and 1904 – and was a tablet station. Because that latter fact I now have to locate exactly where it was and mark it on the map as a closed station.

Here is the amended map.

The locations for the coaling and watering facilities are correct, however the exact location of the tablet station is uncertain.
