Help us fund the purchase of heritage diesel locomotive DC4375. We have secured the loco for preservation and need help paying for it.
Help us pay for the purchase of heritage EMD locomotive DC4375.
4375 started life over fifty years ago as G12 DA1540 built by General Motors Canada.
In 1979 was rebuilt by Clyde Engineering in South Australia to an EMD G22AR classification emerging as DC 4375. Now with a 645 engine it saw many years hauling freight and passenger trains for NZ Rail. It ended its Kiwi Rail working life hauling Auckland suburban trains.
Steam Incorporated have been considering adding a DC to our heritage fleet of EMD locomotives for several years. Eventually we were able to purchase DC 4375 from KiwiRail. The loco was delivered to our Paekakariki site on 1st April 2021. Now that we have saved the locomotive from being scrapped we are now desperately seeking additional donations to help fund the purchase payment.
We are an incorporated society based at Paekakariki on the Kapiti Coast. Formed nearly fifty years ago, we are devoted to the restoration of steam and diesel locomotives plus heritage carriages that we regularly operate on the main line.
To help fund the purchase price of the loco.
