Remarks & Notes 
Freshly repainted KiwiRail DCs 4513 and 4761 head an off-season TranzAlpine passenger back towards Christchurch, with a few hardy souls out on the open-air observation van platforms braving the late-winter airs. The two A1A-A1A locos were high-nosed 567 powered DA class EMD export G12s when built in the early 1960s before being chop-nosed into DCs with 1650hp 645 prime movers in the early 1980s. The extensively rebuilt panorama-windowed carriages date from even more ancient times - being built in NZ in the 1940s. They are due to be replaced with fresh stock in the coming year. This is an excellent train journey!

Trains on 3' 6" (1.067m) track from Whangarei to Bluff with virtually heritage rebuilt EMD and GE locomotives still the mainstay power. The network was privatized in 1990's and operated by Toll until 2008 when state owned KiwiRail was established.
