Remarks & Notes 
The DX class was built by General Electric's Erie, PA plant and entered service from 1972. From 1988 the DX class received a series of modifications and, were classified DXB. Assisting loco is 5108. This train of wood and paper from Karioi was probably the last train I've seen double headed by this class as only one of the class remains in North Island.

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.
