NZR Standard railcar at New Plymouth, 1939

A total six of these A1-1A type diesel mechanical railcars were built by the Hutt workshops in 1938 and surprisingly four are preserved.  The original livery was silver with a green stripe.

This was one of a set of postcards issued at the time of the NZ Centennial Exhibition in 1940.  See earlier posts and our books.
