Locomotives

Steam

The Glenbrook Vintage Railway is very proud to be able to own and operate a number of historic and valuable heritage locomotives, both steam and diesel, from the smallest locomotive, a 3 ton diesel shunter, to the large 110 ton Ja 1250 steam locomotive (named "Diana"). The GVR has overhauled and restored a number of its own locomotives including W480, W644, Ja 1250, & ex-Taupo Totara Timber Co. Mallet loco No. 4. The Railway has also been contracted to restore other visiting steam locomotives such as Mainline Steam Trust's KA 942 & J 1211, and the Silver Stream Railway’s C 847.
