DXR 8022 in Toll Rail livery heads a Toll Rail Metro Port train from Tauranga to Auckland north of Huntly on the North Island Main Trunk. In the distance, the towering chimneys of the Huntly Power Station on the other side of the Waikato River are a landmark. This power station uses local coal blended with cheaper imported coal which is carried by rail from the port of Mt Maunganui, Tauranga. The DXR is rebuilt General Electric U26C first introduced in 1972.
