built by John Gardener of Christchurch
King of the Road!
A model of the Kb class 4-8-4 that plied the Midland Line between Christchurch and Arthurs Pass in the South Island of New Zealand. Raw power packed into the limits of the loading gauge.
And the high stepping queen of the Canterbury Plains; a Mountain class Ja at rest before taking a rake of steel passenger cars south.
The maid of all work Pacific class Ab awaits the all clear.
|Class Wab 4-6-4T, the tank version of the Ab was used often in commuter service which required reverse running.|
All spit and polish! A class R Single Fairlie completed in August 1998
