In Werris Creek, NSW they are at again, not satisfied with the reports of Pacific National (@Asciano) rumoured report of the grain wagons at Murtoa being scrapped, so competitors can't use them.
Pacific National, has embarked on the scrapping the 48 and 81 classes and apparently the L and X classes are next to be scrapped and this will leave only the 81 class.
The reputation of being the Monsanto of the Australian Rail Industry is certainly justified for Pacific National, when considering there is a shortage of locomotives and their motive is to stop competitors getting their hands on the locomotives and freight rolling stock.
There does appear to be a lack of ethical corporate governance by Pacific National: and moral obligation to develop, maintain and invest in the rail infrastructure and former Deputy Prime Minister, Tim Fischer is on the board of Asciano Limited.
This corporate vandalism must also be laid at the feet of the myopic and pernicious politicians in NSW, Queensland, Victoria and South Australia who mistakenly believe that private enterprise does it better.
These imbecilic and atrophied politicians have contributed to the loss of competitiveness of the country through their generosity to hand over the rail assets purchased by the tax payer to unethical and malevolent rail corporations. We say they have also contributed to the decline of the rail infrastructure that has put rail crews lives at risk, because of deterioration of the rail network through lack of maintenance and imposed speed limits of 30 KPH on rail lines due to a lack of safety. Great for industry competitiveness.
The rail networks are in a shambles and will cost the country dearly, while our trade competitors value and are gearing up and investing in their rail infrastructure, because it is directly linked to economic development.
The situation will continue to deteriorate and go backwards when the myopic Abbott Government sells the ARTC to a private consortium.
Advance Australia Fair - We will be lucky.
