Some time after the closure of Auckland Radio ZLD, the backup generator at Musick Memorial Radio Station was sold by Telecom to a private individual.

The photo above was taken around 2002 as the generator was being removed from the east wing of the station.

In case you are wondering how this was achieved, the whole back wall of this section of the building is removable. We just unbolted it, lifted out the generator and then put everything back together again.
