|New description||When CFCL Australia were looking to expand their fleet of mainline lease locomotives, they turned to Avteq for twelve new build locomotives similar to the Freight Australia XR Class (see above). Built with the same engine, and a similar external design, the VL Class is slightly heavier than it’s PN counterpart with a full width nose. The VL Class now see service across Australia on varying duties including Northern Territory ore trains to Trans-Australia intermodal traffic. Many different companies have hired VL Class, such as El Zorro, G&W Australia, P&O Trans Australia and QRNational. Source: [url=http://trackside.wordpress.com/emd/]Trackside[/url]|
