BHP Dash 8 5630

Hey everyone, this is my first new post. On the Pilbara Railways website, it says that the CM39-8M 5630 or "Zeus" wasn't scrapped since it was the first of that unit series. My question is what's its current status? I can't find any new information or photos on the internet.

It is sitting in the middle of Nelson Point yard beside the Loco Overhaul Workshop. It was to be preserved and plinthed at the rail admin offices, but this hasn't happened. It recently spent some time in the shops being looked at reactivating it to be the Mooka Shunt Loco but this didn't happen either.

Also the other unit not scrapped, 5662, still sits at Gidgi Siding.

**EDIT, the unit is also visible on the Landgate map viewer site in very good resolution, much more than so than goggle maps. If you know where to find Gidgi Siding you can also see 5662.
