I don't think PacNat would want to get rid of their NRs any time sooner, they're still doing sterling service for them-especially on the GSR runs. These are known as C44acis in UGL-speak and the main differences are pretty much a beefier engine, bigger radiators and AC traction equipment.

I also see Southern Shorthaul Railroad operate these beasts for Fletcher ;)

Plenty of changes in loco operations occuring with old locos being disposed of and new locos and operators appearing.

Now that Aurizon and PN either cut old locos or sell them overseas,expect to see more new locos appear.

If you are wondering what is heading overseas from Australia,check out this website www.locomotivesforafrica.com/

These C44ACi's were brand new for Fletcher International Exports in Dubbo back in 2014 - the FRAY container wagons came later but were also built in 2014!

Spec sheets are as follows:

FRAY Container Wagons - http://ssrail.com.au/wp-content/uploads ... asheet.pdf

I now know to avoid captainch's place like the plague! If not for the savage Bull Terriers, the Vietnam-era landmines have me freaking out!
