The DL class were built by CNR Dalian Locomotive & Rolling Stock in China from 2010 to 2014 with 3500Hp MTU motors. Reported to be the first order for diesel locomotives from a western railroad and the first new mainline locomotives for a NZ railroad for nearly 30 years, reflecting investment by the government after the buy back in 2008.

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.
