Kiwirail has all but ruled out its own workshops, including
Dunedin's Hillside workshops, being given the chance to "have
a crack" at tendering to build $375 million worth of
passenger trains for Auckland.
One Taieri Gorge train excursion and three freight services
had to be cancelled yesterday as repair work was carried out
on points and tracks between Mosgiel and South Dunedin caused
by a fault in a wagon.
