Sunday October 2 2011 saw a pair of brand new Queensland Rail National ACN class units being shipped west by truck. They came in to Port Augusta on highway 1 and used the oversize vehicle bypass via Yorkey Crossing to go around the town. These units are destined for the Western Australian 3'6" system and it is apparently cheaper to send them by road than to put them on transfer bogies and cut through the red tape to move them on the standard gauge rail system. Such is the world of the disjointed privatised rail system in Australia where it is cheaper and easier to ship locomotives across the nation by road.
