With a team of around 580 people, our maintenance team manages the whole-of-life rolling stock, including fleet planning, engineering, procurement, commissioning, maintenance and asset retirement.
We own, operate, and maintain substantial numbers of rolling stock. Our assets include:
We have maintenance and servicing facilities located throughout New Zealand, with our major overhaul workshop in Woburn, Lower Hutt.
We are undertaking a major procurement project to modernise our fleet including new mainline locomotives, shunt locomotives and wagons. We are also upgrading 12 mechanical depots around the country (including a new Waltham facility) supporting the safe work of our maintenance crews and improving the efficiency of our operations.
The Government has also invested $105 million to rebuild Hillside Workshops in Dunedin and establish a wagon assembly facility.
