Grand Circle excursion train bound for Wellington at Manor Park.



1431 was built by Clyde Engineering in NSW in 1957 for NZ Railways. It was sold to Steam Incorporated in 1988 and, after restoration, returned to mainline service in 2009. Working a Grand Circle excursion back to Paekakariki, it is seen running through Manor Park in Lower Hutt. This locomotive is now fire suppression equipped to again run through the 8.8Km long Rimutaka tunnel.
