El Zorro demise?

reference was posted on facebook. On the face of it, the end may be shortly to arrive for El Zorro, after much debate. Perhaps loss of recent contracts has been the kicker.

A search on the ASIC website for EL Zorro returns, among other things references to document 028506603 "Notification of Application to Wind Up Company Under S. 459p, 462 or 464 (519G)" dated 21/5 and document 028259811 "Notice of Resignation or Removal of Auditor Resignation Of Auditor (315A)"


Also posted that their AWB1 grain rake is stabled until further notice. One would imagine the others are as well.

Sad day perhaps for a lot of rail workers and their families.

I did.

While you cannot download the actual docs, they are both listed on the ASIC site.

G531-G536 are now at Portland.  G537 is at Murtoa so looks like PN are mobilising their resources for the Illuka traffic.

Does PN have a depot at Portland or Murtoa?

Brian, it is my understanding that the PN crew will operate out of Portland.

The sands train will be operating the same as usual, only difference is the locos and some crew.  First train is supposed to run on Monday but may leave here (Portland) today or tomorrow.

looking at the dynon SG turntable today.  the turntable is full of ex ELZ hired locos including L277 and a g class. c501 is also around the turntable.  c501 was not allowed to leave for Seymour and for the moment is stuck in Melbourne reportedly because of receivers.

I thought they were sticking with the CFCLA wagons previously used on this service.
