Welcome. With the collaborations of a couple of friends, I have been gathering info on New Zealand Railways Rolling Stock for the last twenty five years. This site is a sample of the progress so far - started on March 01 2013. Any new info or errors found - please contact.
For International Visitors, some stats - NZ is all Narrow Gauge (1067mm) track and currently about 4,100 km of line, of which about 550+km is electrified. Their is about 200 Mainline Diesel & Electric Locomotives. The newest Class is the DL of 2010 (2700kw CNR Dalian CKD9B, now 40 units are in service). The next newest is Class EF (AC Electric 3000kw 1986) of which 17 are currently running. The second most powerful current Diesel Class is the DX Family GE U26C 2600hp+ (now DXB/C/R combined total of 48).
The most numerous current Class is the DC/DCP(G22AR), a rebuilt class DA GM G12 of 1960's which current total is 71.
The only other major class is the DF Family (of 30) GM GL22MC (now DFB/M/T (GT22MC)).
