UNDER WAY: Oamaru artist Don Paterson formally took over ownership of the Oamaru Railway Station last week from the Oamaru Whitestone Civic Trust.
Since then he has been busy preparing the exterior of the building for painting which will be done in white, black and silver colours.
A shed just south of the train station, which was included in the sale, has already been painted.
The work includes replacing rotten boards in the building and is expected to take several months.
