Pacific National wagon scrapping

In 2008 Pacific National started to scrap a huge collection of wagons that have been located at North Geelong Yard for varying periods of time. Wagons included ELX open wagons, various flavours of louvred vans, VHSF covered sand and fertiliser hoppers, and ancient VHCA cement hoppers. Trying to make money back from wagons too uneconomical to repair, or just scrapping everything so the competition can't use it - who knows...
