300 & 311 ran a fair bit in 2014/2015 and first half of 2016. They are both shagged mechanically and electrically.Stored Locos:Is S307 still in existence? And while I'm at it, does anyone know if CFCLAs S300 and S311 (stored SG) are pretty much clapped out?
A71, A78, A79 (all PN), B65 (SSR), H2 (RC) H4 (PN), S301, S306 (both PN), T388, T399, T402, X37 (all RC), X39, X41, X42, Y165 (all PN, X41 and X42 soon to be scrapped)
S307 still lingers on stored at EDI Port Augusta, as do V544 and the XRB's. S300 and S311 have recently been purchased by a private individual for preservation, in a similar vein to 42103 and 42105. Body wise they look fine to an untrained eye but mechanically they require a fair amount of work by the sounds of it.
Ah, thanks for that. They seemed to come off regular hire about 2012, but ran a tour in 2015, so hopefully the mechanicals haven't become insurmountable over four years.
If X41 and X42 are going, you have to wonder how much longer poor old S301/306/307 are going to avoid the gas-axe.
