The Australian Iron and Steel company of Port Kembla in New South Wales obtained eight English Electric 8SRKT powered diesel locomotives from Commonwealth Engineering in 1950. They are regarded by some as Australias first mainline diesel-electric locomotives, despite being restricted to use inside the steelworks area or on a limited number of short coal-only branch lines, at the expense of the TGRs X1. The first of the series, D1, is preserved at the Trainworks museum at Thirlmere south of Sydney. October 2014
