I don;t get why they are being scrapped and not just auctioned?
PN has a policy of Scrap rather than sell to potential Opposition. Man they were scared of El Zorro. If it is sold/donated to preservation groups, its clapped out and is overpriced from what I've heard. Largely because they don't to opposition to there homogeny
If that's their policy, I wonder how SSR came to acquire those redundant Leigh Creek wagons.

And how did Regional Connect buy the Redundant X,P and Y class locos?

Maybe there just isn't much of a market for a bunch of old diesel locos that have worked well past their designed life-span.


I know it's been said before, but Pacific National have the right to do whatever they want with their property. Clapped out 40+ year old locomotives aren't much value to anyone save for a few sad gunzels.

That is just reality.

Pacific National wouldn't likely see Regional Connect as a competitor.

In fact, they work together, with Pacific National's Melbourne to Griffith service hauling containers for Regional Connect.
