Remarks & Notes 
Auckland Transport train from Britomart terminal climbs towards Parnell Tunnel and Newmarket where the Southern and Western Lines diverge. The tower in background is part of Sky Casino and is the tallest building in New Zealand. This line is part of the first railway in Auckland opened in 1873 to Onehunga. The line to Onehunga was closed to passengers from Penrose about 1973 but was rebuilt and re-opened in 2010 (since electrified.)

Trains on 3' 6" (1.067m) track from Whangarei to Bluff with virtually heritage rebuilt EMD and GE locomotives still the mainstay power. The network was privatized in 1990's and operated by Toll until 2008 when state owned KiwiRail was established.
