Pacific National's Locomotive PN004 at the Depot, 20km south of Townsville.
Pacific National Queensland (PNQ) opened their Brisbane office in November 2003, and commenced revenue running of trains on 19th March 2005. Over $140 million is being invested in Queensland over a two-year period to support the expansion of Pacific National's rail freight operations into the narrow gauge network in Queensland.
Rated at 2424 kW (3000 hp) gross power, the locomotives are among the most powerful narrow gauge diesel electric locomotives operating anywhere in the world today. The high adhesion AC traction system provides much higher tractive effort (pulling power) compared to previous DC traction locomotives, as well as significantly reduced maintenance costs, and gives this locomotive its superior fleet performance.
Info from PNQ web site.
