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 stored 3100/3300/3400 in Jilalan are getting ready for the "gas axe".
The transformer oil has been drained , batteries and air conditioners removed. Talk is the cranes will be set up next week for the move.
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.
