Remarks & Notes 
Train 125 from Whangarei to Westfield approaches Kumeu, a wine producing district just beyond the western suburbs of Auckland. Due to light traffic and the operating costs for a route through very rugged terrain, the line is under threat of closure. DXB is the largest locomotive allowed on the line; even high cube containers don't fit through all the tunnels.

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.
