OLO-44344 "Golden Fleece" Tanker
The OLO wagons came up from NSW in early 1992 whilst still owned by Ampol. Due to Ampol being bought by Caltex a couple of years later, the 18 OLO wagons were stored on the old grain sidings at Pinkenba from around 1994 until 1996 when QR bought them from Caltex. The initial plan from QR was to make use of the bogies and brake equipment. After being sold to QR in 1996, the majority of the OLO wagons were repainted in the usual wagon grey. This most likely would have been done in Toowoomba as it was one of only two remaining wagon maintenance facilities .
