The red TR160 shunter locomotive was built in 1958 by A&G Price, New Zealand. The original prime mover was a Mclaren M6. Now uses a Gardner 6LX engine. The yellow ORB2 Shunter was built by Mitsubishi in 1963.

All locomotives visible (Other than those two diesels being rebuilt) are certified fit to operate on New Zealand's rail network.

No electrification work going on in Karwar? Or was the picture taken earlier?

As far I am aware, the line is currently undergoing electrification in phases and Karwar to Ratnagiri is still getting there while section between Mangalore to Kundapura is already electrified and there were trial runs last year too.

Overall, the entire Mangaluru Mumbai section has a target of Dec 2020 for complete electrification.

Thanks for sharing @sandeepmohan. Thelocomotives, especially the DA1431, seem very well maintained. Keep sharing more pictures whenever you can.

I see all these tracks seem to be close to meter gauge. Is that the national gauge of NZ?

Yes. Took me by surprise when I moved to New Zealand. That said, it seems most suitable due to difficult terrain. Easier to negotiate tight turns. Trains are nowhere as heavy compared to India (or some other parts of the world) so this gauge works well.
