The DC class (EMD G22AR) were rebuild from G12 (DA) in 1978-83. Several were fire suppression equipped for working Metlink trains through Rimutaka tunnel. DFT class has taken over duties on these services which run to a tight schedule. The cars are ex-British Rail Mk 2E/F refurbished at Hillside Engineering in Dunedin from 2006 following the success of the conversion of similar cars for the Capital Connection train running between Wellington and Palmerston North.
