This DFT was the first one built by the Head Druff back in the days when Otaki and Cass were just a few feet apart rather than in seperate islands, and was used as a master for a few more, some of which may still be around earning their keep on railways around the country. It arrived at the Waihaorunga Model Railway Club (Northern Branch) headquarters via KiwiBonds, who is currently in the country terrorising passenger trains from low flying helicopters and perfecting his gurning ability via skype.
