Having a rest at the southern end of Te Rapa yard, complete with the pantograph down and classmate 30105 for company.
EF 30071 is one of three members of her class to receive the Tranz Rail black (or Bumble Bee) livery. The other two were 30013 and 30042.
A few hours after I took this photograph, which was at 2:14pm, EF's 30071 and 30105 had left Hamilton with Train 229 for Wellington. Obviously the EF's would have only taken the train as far south as Palmerston North.
