Pacific National locomotive scrapping at Dynon

In January 2019 Pacific National commenced the scrapping of stored A class locomotives A73, A77, A81 and A85 at South Dynon. These units had been put into storage in late 2014 after seeing little use for many months. In April the scrapping of stored X class locomotives X41 and X42 commenced, followed in May by X39 and A79. In January 2020 scrapping of standard gauge locomotives commenced, with ex-Westrail N class diesel 1872 moved to North Dynon, followed by H1 and Y152.
