Does any one know what happened to the G wagon that was in the park on the south side of Sarina near the Museum?

I heard it was moved to Aurizon's public lookout at Jilalan, but I haven't been down to Jilalan to check. That particular G was supposedly the last wagon tippled at Hay Point before the port was converted to bottom dumping.

Sulla is correct. Its been moved to the new public lookout overlooking Jillalan yard. Stupidly, and annoyingly, its been placed a*#e  about face, with the information panel on the side now facing towards the yard, and away from the carpark and lookout, so unless they actually go looking, the public probably wont get to read it.

Info boards are from the early 90's, way out of date.  A silly place for a lookout - not often a loco moves around there, and with on-track wheel replacements happening, not a lot of wagon shunting takes place anymore.  A more sensible place would have been next to the bypass, where something is always moving.  The other G wagon from the tandem pair is at Coppabella.  The old display track coming into Sarina is still there.  I think that Catherine should have got a 80 tonne wagon placed at the lookout and left the G alone.  With the 31's being scrapped, one of them could be put there instead!

Putting a 31 next to the highway at Sarina actually sounds like a pretty good idea.

I have said a few times, one of the old, stuffed 35 or 3900s would look good plinthed at the turn off into Callemondah Drive in Gladstone.
