I see in some recent Youtube videos that DV2 is testing out and about.  
Has it taken up service on the cement train yet?

Don't know why bothered painting it though, should have just given it a coat of grey since that's how it will end up anyway.

Not yet on the cement train.

Bit of a trivia, DV1 was ex Y7, DV2 is ex 2007...

Does DV1 still exist? Which loco generally provides power on the cement train?

DV1 still in service for now.
A TR is on the power end.

Ok, thanks.
So DV1 will be fully replaced/scrapped?

My money would be on it being scrapped.
It's bound to be in very poor condition body wise considering what it's been doing the last few years.

Can't imagine the various groups would be interested in it except possibly for a spare set of bogies.

Are the bogies Y-set originals?

Looking at photos, DV2 has tri-axle bogies? Wouldn't it be better to drop it on a pair of freight bogies?

DV1 has Y bogies, yes.

DV2 has it's originals as well, pretty sure they'll have just removed the motors.  Why spend time adapting a pair of freight bogies when you don't have to?

I wonder why TasRail chose to convert a DQ when they still have two Y Class locomotives they could have used.

Commonality of parts, relative age. Thank goodness they didn't gut another Y.
