QGT's Diesel Locomotives Page shows all the Diesel Locomotives still in service with Queensland Rail & AURIZON (QR National).

QR National is the largest rail freight company in Australia and was formerlyn owned by the Queensland Government. It was created as an independent company on 1 July 2010 when transport and logistics company QR Limited was split into two companies. 
QR National was rebranded as Aurizon in December 2012.

Queensland Rail is responsible for the state’s passenger operations, regional track and support services, and remains owned by the Government. QR National owns the balance of the QR business – above-rail coal and freight services, the export coal network in Queensland and rollingstock manufacturing and track maintenance services. QR National is being privatised by the Government through an initial public offering, which is scheduled for the last quarter of 2010. QRNational was established in the 2004/2005 financial year when QR’s three freight business streams – coal, bulk and containerised services, were brought under one banner. It was formed with the charter to operate freight services in Queensland and around Australia, expanding though the winning of contracts and the acquisition of other companies
