I can't recall if QR actually own cattle wagons anymore. Aurizon scrapped/stowed the cattle wagons they owned. TMR owned the crates that had self opening doors in the BSA that luckily didn't kill anyone as the train went past at 80kph but they were bolted onto previous Aurizon rollingstock. Who knows, maybe TMR have bought the wagons from Aurizon.

Government urged to focus on intermodal hub locations

QuotePacific National has welcomed the new Federal Government's pledge to examine major infrastructure projects, including the cost and scope of the $14.5 billion proposed Inland Rail line.

Pacific National chief executive officer Paul Scurrah said importance needed to be placed in relation to future intermodal terminals, which must be positioned in a location to secure a shift of freight from road to rail to deliver reduced emissions, traffic congestion and road accidents.

"I am confident the incoming Albanese Government gets this," he said.

"Shoring up investment confidence in the freight and logistics sector, particularly at a time when the national supply chain is under intense cost pressures and capacity constraints, is also imperative.

"Under an Albanese Government, Pacific National would like to see Infrastructure Australia – first established by Labor – play a greater role in helping to enhance the safety and productivity of the national supply chain, including track upgrades to build greater resilience in the interstate rail network. In a competitive global marketplace, Australian import and export businesses can ill afford to have major railways shutdown for extended periods of time due to sub-standard track infrastructure.

"Having spent six years as the federal minister responsible for infrastructure, transport and regional development, the new Prime Minister will bring experience and a deep of understanding of the rail industry's infrastructure needs."
