663 approaches top of the long 3% grade up to Westmere.



AB 663 was retired by NZR in 1969 and purchased by Mainline Steam in 1983 who returned it to the mainline in 1997. 663 ran from Plimmerton depot to Wanganui to run trips to Castlecliff and Kai Iwi as part of a Vintage Weekend. This shot is on the Westmere Bank north of the city which is long tortuous 3% grade.
