The 13 2600 class GE U22C locomotives were built in 1983 and 1984 for the Newlands coal project in which the Collinsville branch was upgraded and extended 73 kilometres to Newlands. The 2600 class design was based on the GE Universal series, and they were a significant change from the Clyde-built GL26C and GL22C locomotives that QR had ordered for its heavy haul rail projects since 1970.
In this image from 1999, 2612+2608+2208 lift a loaded coal train up the grade after crossing the Bowen River bridge on the Havilah to Birralee section on the journey from Newlands to Abbot Point.
