Diesel Days.

De

Thanks to all our supporters who have visited over the last 4 week while we have been running our 2 diesel electric locomotives. As from Sunday 7th April we are back to running steam locomotives, but if you are a diesel fan look out for Diesel Days later in the year.

 

Due to the extremely dry conditions in Wellington and the total fire ban that is now in place our heritage trains will be hauled by one of our diesel electric locomotives for the coming weeks. This ban has now been relaxed and we are back to running steam locomotives.

Both of these locomotives, De505 and 508 were built in 1952 for passenger and freight trains and are now older than some operating steam locomotives.
