Hamersley Iron 9-44CW unit 7093 stored.

Originally Hamersley Iron 9-44CW locomotive 7093 serial 47772 was the highest numbered and final Dash 9 in the original order of twenty-nine locos delivered from Erie GE in early 1995.

This unit now under the guise of Rio Tinto is written off following a loadout 'incident' back in March 2019 and is now stored on 38 Road at Rio Tinto's 7 Mile facility with long stored retired Dash 7 (CM36-7) units 5051 and 5052.

We understand this is the first 9-44CW unit to be written off by Hamersley Iron / Rio Tinto.
