The Big Move: 16 Locomotives!!!
On 9th June 2011, KiwiRail moved a batch of 14 new DL class locomotives from Auckland Port to Te Rapa (Hamilton) in New Zealand, using two earlier DL class to haul them. The 14 brand new locomotives had recently arrived at the port from China, where the 3,650hp locomotives had been built at the CNR Dalian factory.
Here we follow the delivery run of the new locomotives, along the Papakura to Taupiri portion of their journey.
