On Saturday 24th October I went to the same event as Kevin(infocusb4). It was a celebration of the Otago Central Railway. The Vulcan Railcar, steam engines, and the other two classes of diesel locomotives that were present on the day, were also plying this line at the time. Hopefully Kevin and Shirley, these shots will compliment the ones you both took. These are also for deafcon1's viewing pleasure. :-)

This is the DG class loco. It was made by English Electric and had a large straight 6 cylinder engine. I just cant remember off hand how many traction motors it had.

I remember this loco having a very distinctive sound, I guess because of the straight six.

You are so right John. They did have a sound all of their own. :-)
