Steam Incorporated is dedicated to the restoration and full working order of retired Steam and Diesel Locomotives


Steam Incorporated is an Incorporated Society dedicated to the restoration to full working order of ex-New Zealand Government Railways locomotives and rolling stock for operation on the Kiwi Rail owned railway lines of New Zealand. The Society is based at the coastal town of Paekakariki, near Wellington, on the North Island of New Zealand, where its primary purpose is to rebuild and maintain heritage railway equipment to the high standard required for main-line operation.

Our current big projects are the overhaul's of Ka945 and Da1471 and while this is happening we have to keep our current fleet of Locomotive's and Carriages mainline certified.

$5,000 Donated  12 April 2021

We are thrilled to have received donations totalling $5,000 towards the purchase of this locomotive. A very big thankyou to everyone who has dug deep to make this happen.

Since arriving at our depot on 1st April Dc4375 has been given a quick inspection and appears to be in better condition than initially thought. It has been started and has been able to move around our yard under its own power.

We would like to offer everyone who has donated to the fundraising a guided tour of the loco and also hopefully a stint behind the controls. Please email to arrange a suitable day and time.
