An illustrated catalogue of Auckland’s Museum of Transport and Technology’s (MOTAT’s) diverse collection of 20 locomotives, ranging from the 135-ton K 900, built in 1932, to a tiny petrol- engined British-built Planet dating from 1927. Many are maintained in full working order, including two which are more than 140 years old. Each locomotive has its own page chapter (usually two pages), illustrated by a fascinating selection of historical and contemporary photographs.
