Remarks & Notes 
7092 hauls train 126 from Westfield to Whangarei through rugged countryside between Helensville and Wellsford. The train is approaching the unstable Makerau tunnel which has a severe speed restriction of about 10 miles p/h and profile restricts high cube containers to well wagons! Reported to lose c. $2 million a year, the line is under threat of closure.

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.
