TranzRail EF electrics with a southbound freight train in winter snow

At the edge of the desert plateau in the central North Island.about 6 km south of Waiouru.  This was one of the pics in a NZ Geographic magazine article from 1998.

Presently the continued use of electric locos on KiwiRail is in doubt as its board of directors seem to prefer Chinese-built diesels for reasons unfathomable to anyone else.
