Entering service in 1992 for the NSW rail operator FreightRail (later FreightCorp), the 58 82 class locomotives were built by Clyde Engineering for use on heavy goods trains in New South Wales, Australia. The design was based on the prototype locomotive GML10 built by Clyde Engineering, Kelso in 1990.
They have two cabs, built in a hood style. Early artists' impressions showed them numbered as the 94 class, with the first two initially being numbered 9401 and 9402 but then renumbered 8201 and 8202 before leaving the factory.
In October 1997, three were destroyed in the Beresfield rail accident (8219, 8246, 8247). The remaining 55 were included in the sale of FreightCorp to Pacific National in February 2002. On 5 June 2014, 8221 caught fire near Awaba while running as the fourth locomotive on a loaded ER64 coal service. The locomotive was subsequently hauled to EDI Cardiff where examination was undertaken to determine the cause of the fire, ultimately being attributed to a fuel leak. Having suffered substantial damage, the locomotive remained stored at Cardiff for some time before being progressively stripped, and eventually scrapped, in October 2016.
The 82 class are being progressively repainted to Pacific National livery, commencing with 8202 in August 2016. The balance of the fleet are in FreightCorp livery, with Pacific National decals. 82 classes are mostly allocated to Pacific National's grain services throughout NSW, with only a few remaining allocated to coal.
