The New South Wales 86 class is a class of 50 mainline electric locomotives introduced from 1982 in the state of New South Wales by the State Rail Authority[1]. The locomotives were built by Commonwealth Engineering of Granville, New South Wales, with electrical equipment supplied by Mitsubishi.

They were also based at Lithgow for predominately freight operation, and were lighter than the preceding 85 class. When FreightCorp was sold to Pacific National, all were withdrawn when Pacific National decided to discontinue electric locomotive haulage. All except 2 were sold to Silverton Rail in 2002 and then to Allco Finance with some on sold while most were scrapped at Broken Hill.
