Historical Notes: Steam locomotive "A" 196 was originally built as steam locomotive "A" 62. It was built by Dubs & Co., Glasgow, Scotland, in 1873 (maker's no. 656/73), and went into service in New Zealand in January 1875. She was transferred to the New Zealand Railways Maintenance Branch in 1906, and was renumbered "A" 196 probably soon after the transfer. She was shipped to Whatipu partly dismantled before being brought to Piha for use on the Piha Tramway. She was laid up about 1925, and went on display at the Otahuhu Workshops about 1929. See "Register of New Zealand Railways steam locomotives, 1863-1971" by W G Lloyd, and "Piha, a history in images" by Sandra Coney (p 53).
