Would I be right in thinking that the LDP's are omitted because they're part of EDI's leasing subsidiary?

I ain't going to lose any sleep over it. That's what UGL said at the 'handover ceremony' for GWU006 today, so it's their problem. Someone else can ring 'em up and tell 'em.

CEY001-007 should also be in the list I believe.

In their recent press release (31 May) UGL said the most recent order of ES44DCi would give Rio a total of 160 locomotives.

I wrote to them saying Rio already had 159 units, and they came back saying they meant to say "169"

Since I forgot the CEYs (and LDPs), if you count the 5020s it would probably be correct that GWU007 is the 100th.

UGL vary in describing them as C44aci or C44acHi but they have quite different frames and bogies and traction motors but the same power equipment above the frame.

So when 9308 emerges, they will have built more AC units than NRs.....

Seems a bit of a waste to me to buy. locomotive for intermodal that when fully fueled and at 139t is speed limited to 80km/h when there is another type that has been proven to haul more, carry more fuel and is unrestricted speed wise. Me personally I'd go with TTs to replace the NRs and leave the 92/93s on coal trains where they seem to perform best.
"GT46C-ACe"

92's don't perform well on the coal trains. They are a bugger at low speed when loading / unloading. 3 90's get us up Mininbah better than 3 92's. TT's are better again.
Remember, a NR can not take a full fuel load without a speed restriction.

This is true to a point . I remember Gonads people saying that full to the top of the emergeny filler they can take 14000 but they are set to cut off at the normal fill points at 12500L  . 
Some years ago rumor has it that two went out on a superfreighter with 13500 each . The wheels didn't fall off or the rails spread and the sky didn't fall in . Curious .

Many years ago, QR ran coal trains from Collinsville to Mt Isa using WHO wagons, which were the biggest open
