    According to a posting on the Facebook NZ Rail Geography group it was a D class 2-4-0t.

    Wow! I thought (most) of them were scrapped, hopefully a restoration group gets her up and running, It would be a good engine for Motat since they only have about (3?) running steam locomotives

    They have to find it first.

    The photo I saw showed a C class loco.
    Regardless of its identity it should really just be left in the ground. Therse 2 C’s preserved (Silverstream and westport) plus 7 D’s surviving (2 in running order). I would think spending money on something rarer (ie WMR no9) would meak more sense from a historical point of view.
