UGL announced in 2011 that it planned to develop a narrow gauge version of the GE PowerHaul locomotive, which has been used in the United Kingdom, Turkey and South Korea. Three prototype units were built at Broadmeadow and eventually began operating with Pacific National in Queensland in 2019. They were originally numbered UGL001–3, but were renumbered before entering service
