You have a railcar that has almost been completely destroyed due to a fire which has also been sold to an interstate group because its owner wants the best return they can get for it (that's nothing unusual although I still can't figure out why the QLD group would want the thing).
You have a group of local enthusiasts bemoaning the fact that "their train" is being "stolen" from them. That group of local enthusiasts now want to stop "their train" from leaving "its home" even though the resources to restore it, and indeed the likelihood of that happening in "its home" range from incredibly slim to none at all. Instead of actually using this time to concentrate on obtaining the other two already operational cars and giving them a good home, they'll put up a fight for something that is to say the least, just about derelict, just so it can say where it "belongs" and rot for all eternity (they are gunzels after all, and there's nothing unusual about that sort of behavior in a crowd like this).
What's likely to happen;
A band of people will get together and prevent it leaving the state (a state that has less money to throw around than some regional area's of NSW); DP13 will be given to a local group instead; that band of people who were responsible for it staying in Tasmania will slowly leave the movement resulting in it becoming the groups new toy; the group will realise that it's a heap of crud that they can't restore without a massive cash injection that they don't have; it'll be pushed to the back of the shed and forgotten about where it'll just deteriorate further; the band of gunzels who kept it in Tasmania will live happily ever after in the knowledge that they kept DP13 in Tasmania even though it's still stored down the back of some shed (or more likely out in the open) in no better condition than it is now and also despite that fact that they haven't seen it in years since liking a Facebook page and making a few posts.
DP13's future in Tasmania, bleak. DP13's future in Queensland, we don't know, but it could be better than the one it faces in Tasmania. However, a group of gunzels who won't put in the hard yards to give it a future in Tasmania once their little campaign is over won't give it that chance to be anything other than a burnt out shell stored down the back that's really only good for a few parts and the scrap bin.
Why am I so pessimistic? Because I've seen it before. I've seen a steam locomotive that sat peacefully in a park for twenty-five years handed over to an interstate preservation group who could have had it at their base within two months, and fully restored to working order within two years as was fully intended, lost (the interstate group inspected it and found it to have a fantastic boiler and to also be in great mechanical order). Instead, a group of local gunzels and some old fuddies from the town rallied against it and instead it was decided to withdrawal the offer because of the local backlash and to instead leave it in the park with a new paint job. Do you know where that loco is now? Well, it sat in the park for another five years until a local tourist railway in its home state got a hold of it after the council finally decided enough was enough, but the kicker is that it's now stored out the back of a shed with rust holes in the cab and tender walls that you could push a fat lady through while its motion and wheels were pinched to replace the flogged out set on another loco that itself isn't running anymore (and, that loco was stopped because they flogged that replacement set of motion out after a rather "rushed" bit of repair and changeover work).
Railway enthusiasts can themselves be a railway item's worst enemy at times.
