  Sulla1 Chief Commissioner

It looks like Aurizon is getting ready to off load most of its stored electric locos. The 14 3100s, 7 3300s, 14 3400s and 11 3900s have been in storage since at least 2011 when the last 3800s arrived. Several CFCLA classes (GL, VL, T, C) are also listed.

The move is underway.
Locos minus bogies are starting to head to Mackay harbour to be cut up. Bogies have been removed to bring the loco down under 80t due to a weight restriction on the Vines creek bridge on harbour rd.

Thirty-two locomotives by my calculations. Most of the Clyde 3300/3400s were only 21-years old, but they had been operating headaches for Aurizon's predecessors.
