8201–18, 8220, 8222–45, 8248–58
Year of entry into service:
New South Wales introduced the 82 Class in 1994 to fulfil the need for general freight locomotives. They were leased under a Ready Power agreement, with the manufacturers also providing maintenance. The 82 Class units are similar in appearance to the 90 Class, but are lighter and less powerful. This enables them to be used in a wider range of service, which is mostly in New South Wales, but also interstate. Four members of the class have been scrapped.
