Introduction

Welcome to New Zealand Rail 120, Lewis Holden's blog on modelling railways in New Zealand. I'm now modelling in 1:87 (HOn3.5). For NZR plans see the Plans page, or the NZ120 Facebook group.

DFT 7008

Not that I want to boast, but I've just purchased this fine beasty on TradeMe:
Ooooh
It's none other than DFT 7008, the first of the General Motors DF class rebuilt by New Zealand Rail in 1992. The model looks a lot like the loco's original colour scheme, circa January 1993.
