Mangaweka Express Memories

March 25, 2018

Childhood memories were brought alive to many on Saturday when the Steam Inc's Ja1271 steam train rolled into Levin just before 9 am on its way from Paekakariki to Mangaweka.

 

The Ja 1271 was one of the last steam locomotives built in Dunedin and was in service until 1971.

 

On Saturday the Mangaweka Express returned from Taihape and passed through Feilding and was running early.

 

Lovingly restored the steam train began life as an excursion locomotive in 1997.
