Some shots from the South Island of NZ. Most of these were taken during my time at university in Dunedin 97-89, during which time the 1969 vintage Mitsubish tri-bo DJ locos which spelt the end for South Island (and indeed NZ) steam, were being themselves phased out.
All images are scanned from Fuji 100 prints. All photos by Darryl K Bond. Feel free to use for non-profit purposes provided you credit the photographer.
