Do you know what the plans are for X50? Was she withdrawn from the Mildura freight last year on a/c needing repairs?

I have no idea. All I know is it's currently doing a tour of PN's stabling locations.

Vicsig now has H1 as scrapped. Piccie of her minus panels and fuel tank, though not broken up. Can anyone (I'm looking at you, Fatty) confirm her fate? And what of Y152 next to her?
H1 is  at North Dynon in the process of being scrapped with some parts heading to another loco. Y152 was to be sold to another operator but the sale fell through so it's now going to be scrapped. X50 is currently at UGL undergoing repairs.
Any idea who it was going to be sold to?
Bluescope - I'll leave it to people's imaginations the reason the sale fell through.

Don't think i really need to think very hard as to why...

Maybe Y152 could be put on a bridge and burnt

Y152 now has a sign in the window saying that it is the property of V/Line maintenance. H1 looks to be intact aside from a missing hood.

I will resist the temptation to ponder aloud how V/Line and Maintenance are usually mutually exclusive terms.

If correct, that would make V/lines latest acquisition the second oldest loco in the fleet.

one would expect that it would be a parts donor if v/line have got it, remembering they run at least 4 between southern cross and geelong.

This i suppose depends on both the condition of the loco, and the exact intention V/Line bought it for?
Parts, or they really do need another operational one?
