Behind the scenes
Keeping things on track by taking care of
the infrastructure, engineering and upgrade
of the rollingstock assets
Our engineering team provides mechanical services to the freight and passenger businesses, and to Auckland Transport through the freight team. With two main depots in Woburn (Lower Hutt) and Hillside (Dunedin), our engineering teams build, maintain and refurbish rollingstock used on the network. Rollingstock can include locomotives, wagons and passenger carriages. More information here.
