Straight electric No 8650 was the only "Tri-Bo" locomotive to operate in New South Wales. The adoption of this wheel arrangement was intended to see what reduction in track deflection, rail wear and flange wear could be obtained in comparison with the "Co-Co" wheel arrangement more commonly used. "Tri-Bo" locomotives have a significant presence in Queensland.
