About the L507 2-4-OT Steam Locomotive
This steam locomotive helped pull the Wellington to Auckland Parliamentary Special in 1908 - the first train on the North Island Main Trunk Line. In 2008, it performed the role again at the centennial recreation of the trip. Ten L Class locomotives were built in 1877 as a faster passenger alternative to the F Class.
