TO: The Honourable the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly of Queensland

Queensland Residents draws to the attention of the House: to the retirement of the 87 Electric passenger trains (EMU) manufactured, operated and maintained in Queensland. These were the first electric passenger trains to be operated in SEQ servicing the state for approximately 40 years. These trains have their roots deeply imbedded in Qld and SEQ as they have transported millions of passengers to work, sporting events, international events such as EXPO 88 and the Commonwealth Games as well as countless other destinations.

Your petitioners, therefore, request the House to: utilise this opportunity to re-use and reintegrate a small number of these trains as a unique and historical artificial reef in Moreton Bay/surrounding waters for the ongoing enjoyment of future generations of Australians and tourists.
