Train 1609 Masterton - Wellington follows shoreline into capital



Always glad to see Pictures from the other side of the Planet! Greeting from Europe!
Thanks Federico. Always glad to see your photos too.
The DF class were built by GM in Canada and introduced from 1979. In 1990's were upgraded with turbo etc to GT22 MC. Locomotives working Metlink trains between Wellington and Masterton have special fire suppression equipment fitted for working through the 8,8 Km long Rimutaka tunnel. The carriages are ex-British Rail Mk II which were extensively refurbished.
