[Price Ar] The Price Ar #115 working at Port Craig for the Marlborough Timber Co. between 1926 and 1931. The Ar was the largest and heaviest bush locomotive built by Price. It was a Meyer
type 0-4-0+0-4-0.

[Price Ar] Another view of the Ar working at Port Craig. There were a number of well engineered wooden trestles on this tramway, the largest being the Percy Burn viaduct measuring 410 feet (125 metres) in length and 118 feet (36 metres) high. These viaducts may still be seen today.

[Price Ar] This photograph shows more clearly the cylinder arrangements with the drive to a counter shaft thence through spur gears to the axles. This photograph was taken in the mid 1940s, when it was working for Gamman & Co. at Mamaku. It served there from 1939 until 1946 when it was scrapped.

[Price C] Two Price C-Type were built, in 1921 and 1922. This photo is probably the 1921 model #107 working in the Kakahi area.

[Price C] Another shot of #107. Not actually a photogenic locomotive. But purpose built, it worked well from 1921 until around 1950.

[Price C] Price #108, built in 1922 for the Taringamotu Totara Timber Co where it worked until 1962. It finished its days with Ellis & Burnand Ltd. at Manunui.
