W-class still operating Route 30?

Can anyone tell me whether W-class trams are still running on Route 30?

I'm aware YT have said W-class are well & truely on the way out on fare-charging routes, and have already disappeared from Chapel Street.  But Internet searching has not confirmed one way or another if they are still operating on Latrobe Street.

Reason for asking is I'm visiting Melbourne next week and, if possible, want to take one last nostalgic ride on the W-class on a "proper" tram route (i.e. not crammed onto a City Circle car with crowds of tourists and annoying kids).

Thanks.  Glad I probably will get one last chance for a ride.

Presumably YT will not be giving any farewell or warning to the W's demise from the 30.   You'll just turn up one day soon and find Southbank's A-class operating the service.

Route 30 is still mostly operated by the W's, but I am certainly seeing more of the A class on the route than a few months ago.
