Rolling Stock Register

The Society owns several pieces of locomotives and rolling stock. Some are waiting or in process of restoration. Our premier locomotive is undoubtably Wab794 which was featured on the steam hauled trips organised as part of the Wellington to Auckland ‘Overlander’ service during 2011.
