Tranz Metro D near Johnsonville - New Zealand

A restored English Electric car set D 2687 from early 1950's approaches Tunnel 5 on Johnsonville Branch. This line on a 2.5% gradient with tight curves was part of the original Main Trunk from Wellington to Auckland which was retained as far as Johnsonville and electrified at 1500V DC after the deviation via Tawa tunnels was opened in 1937.
