Description 
Railcar known as RM 1 [Rail Motor 1]. Designed and built in 1992 by Marlborough's Chief Engineer of the Picton Rail workshop, Gary Coburn of Picton, with help from volunteers at Blenheim Riverside Railway Society [BRRS]. It has a 4 cylinder Toyota diesel engine and is full of innovative technology. It has two bogeys and is powered in the middle with drive shafts in each bogey. It was also the first BRRS vehicle to have an air powered track sander put in, which dispenses sand onto the track in front of the wheels to improve adhesion.
