Steam Incorporated is a railway heritage and preservation society based at the Paekakariki Railway Station.

It owns one of New Zealand’s largest fleets of heritage passenger carriages certified for mainline operation on the regular national network.

Locomotives designated to operate passenger services (both mainline and heritage operations) are required to have fire suppression systems within their engine bays. Steam locomotives also have built-in safety features to ensure that when operating, they do not cause fires along the stretch of railway that they are travelling through.
