This site deals with the locomotives, other than New Zealand designed geared locos (refer New Zealand Geared Locomotives),
that were used on the bush tramways in New Zealand. There are some geared engines, such as the Climax and Heisler, but the majority were mainly rod engines
and these were sourced both from overseas and as cast-offs from the national railway system.
Climax 1650 crossing Mangatukutuku viaduct on Ellis & Burnand tramway.
