F139 was built at the East Town workshops in Wanganui in 1891 and is a 30ft Clerestory roof guards van. Of 13 similar vans built, 139 is now the sole survivor. The body of a similar van (that has a longer clerestory section) survives at MOTAT in Auckland.

C132

Our small C class locomotive was built by Dubs and Company of Glasgow in 1875, makers number 885,  the last of the class to be built and was delivered to the then isolated Greymouth Section in December of that year. At first the locomotive was not numbered but named Pounamu a common practice at the time. In 1877 it was numbered C 132 and later in 1882 renumbered C 2. When originally built it had a 0-4-0 wheel arrangement but this was changed in 1879 to a 0-4-2 after the addition of a Bissell trailing truck.
