Double Ja 4-8-2 at Glenbrook Vintage Railway

Ja 1250 (Hillside 1950s) and Ja 1271 (North British) haul an excursion from Victoria Avenue, Waiuku along the Glenbrook Vintage Railway and then onto the Kiwi Rail mainline all the way to Hamilton. The carriages are restored traditional NZ Railways steel and older wood panel cars from Steam Incorporated, Paekakariki with open platform Glenbrook Vintage Railway cars at the rear. The grade is 1 in 50 and this was a heavy train!

Correction: Ja 1271 built by Hillside, Dunedin, NZ.
Ja 1275 is only surviving North British built Ja. These Hillside sisters are coal-fired, whereas the North British engines were oil-fired.
