While its sad to see the last blue DX's disappear from New Zealand's rail network it is good to see Kiwi Rail spending some money on the DX class.
So without further ado, heres a selection of good and not so good shots of the blue DX's at work around East Otago. Enjoy!
DX 5333 with Oamaru banker DC 4726 cruising into Bushey with 923 Middleton - Dunedin freight. 21/01/09.
Looking alittle worse for wear, DX 5460 leads 922 Dunedin - Middleton freight just south of Hillgrove. 20/01/09.
A clean DX 5189 with with regular Oamaru banker, bumble bee DC 4726 at one of my favourite summer spots, the entrance to Bushey loop. 31/03/09.
DX 5483 and fruit salad DC 4876 with a short 922 Dunedin - Middleton freight cruise into Palmerston to uplift empty 'goldies' before continuing north. 29/01/10.
