Remarks & Notes 
1250 was built at Hillside, Dunedin in 1949 and was among the last steam engines built for New Zealand rails. On this day 1250 was making probably the last scheduled runs after serving the Glenbrook Vintage Railway for over 20 years. To renew operational certification requires funds beyond current resources of the railway so it could be many years before this locomotive can roam the rails again.
