Sadly, although X101 and X102 did spend their early life on the North Coast, the illustrated locomotive is not X101 but X212, a much larger and more powerful locomotive.

Some time late in 1994, a rail tractor was needed at the Port Kembla wagon repair depot. X101 was available but not quite up to the job. Also in Port Kembla was X212, a more powerful unit that would be suitable. Sadly X212 had been written off and no money could be spent on it. So a subterfuge was adopted. X101, then carrying the green and yellow scheme from Delec, got a quick coat of Freight Rail blue and the number X212 was applied, while X212 was also repainted blue appearing as X101.

The "new" X101 got the required repairs and appeared at the wagon repair depot, while the new smaller X212 in its new paint appeared in a line next to the station (not far from where X101 is in your photo).

Subsequently the unit numbered X212 was removed for preservation and got its original number X101 back.

The real X212, however still carries the swapped number at Port Kembla.

A number of X200 series were renumbered in the X100 series when the Westinghouse train brake system was removed leaving only the independent brake, which allowed operation by traffic staff rather than loco crew. However, all of these kept the last two digits of their original number. X201, however had a different style of body to the present "X101" so that was not the reason for the new number.

I'm presuming that you've photographed this adjacent to 4503 (to the left, out of shot).

In which case, it's still there - with 4503. And now has 8013 as its neighbour on the right.

Port Kembla Loco's rotten row Sad

EDIT: Corrected 8011 to 8013

Wow it did not take long to get 8011 to rotten row at Port Kembla
I saw it shunting the Patricks yard a Carrington last night

Well, this is supposed to be the last week of the C class locos on the Stapo (Sandgate-Port Botany) train.

During the month of February, I managed to observe 81 sightings of the three down daily explorers, and one down daily daylight  XPT through Bundanoon on the short south (NSW).    Not one was on time or within 10 minutes of on time.  The best was 12 minutes late, the worst 99 minutes late.  15-30 minutes late was the usual performance.
