Remarks & Notes 
The DF class were built by EMD Canada and entered service in 1979 and were rebuilt with turbo in 1990s and more recently BrightStar and other upgrades costing over $1M per locomotive. This manifest train is running from Whangarei to Auckland with freight mostly from the dairy factory at Kauri, now the northern extent of the railroad network in NZ.

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.
