Remarks & Notes 
The DFT class were rebuilt in 1990s from original DF class introduced from 1979 and currently all DFT class units are being rebuilt as DFB (equipped with BrightStar.) Assisting on this train to Whangarei is DC 4058 (EMD G22AR rebuilt from DA class G12.) Ahead are 12 more tunnels with 2% grades between them. The line loses around $2 million each year now so remains under threat of closure.
