Remarks & Notes 
The DF class were built by GM in Canada and introduced from 1979. In 1990's were upgraded with turbo etc to GT22 MC. Over the last few years most of the survivors, to the delight of rail fans, have been refurbished at Hutt workshops at a cost said to be over $1M each locomotive. Whangarei is the northernmost city and station in New Zealand.
