| The 86 class was a class of electric locomotives built by Comeng, Granville for the State Rail Authority. The 86 class initially hauled passenger and freight services to Lithgow on the Main Western line and Wyong on the Main Northern line. Their sphere of operation extended to Newcastle on the latter line in June 1984 and to Port Kembla in January 1986 when the Illawarra line was electrified. With a one-hour rating of 4,400 horsepower, the 86 class was the most powerful locomotive in Australia at the time.|
