Western Springs Auckland New Zealand 1980

New Zealand Railways 4-8-4 K900 at The Museum of Transport and Technology (MOTAT) in Auckland.

 

The NZR 3ft 6in gauge K class of 1932 was a class of mixed traffic steam locomotives that operated on New Zealand's railway network. Built at the Hutt workshops of NZR the class were used on heavy freight and express passenger trains & all 30 were withdrawn between 1964 & 1967. Two others, 911 & 917, survived.

 

It doesn't feel like 30 years ago!
