Locomotives & Rolling Stock

The GVR has a large collection of ex-New Zealand Railways locomotives, carriages & goods wagons that were saved from the scrap yard. Today many of them have been restored and can be seen operating on the Railway.

The GVR has three separate ‘train sets’ from its three branches.

GVR Heritage Rail set in lined maroon red which operates our regular public Sunday's.

GVR Scenic Rail set, which operates special public trips on the New Zealand Railway national network.

GVR First Class Rail
set, two beautifully restored carriages in lined Pullman Green, these form the basis for our dining service and our First Class.

A number of other heritage carriages are in storage awaiting their turn for restoration and return to service.

Numerous heritage goods wagons were saved and found their way onto the GVR, some of very historic significance, including an 1878 6-wheeled hand crane. A number of wagons are used regularly over the railway for maintenance and work trains every week, whereas the more historic and valuable wagons are used only on the special Railfans Day that GVR operates occasionally.
