Freshly out shopped XR555 looking very good sitting in North Geelong Yard along with XR552.  All very quiet this afternoon, unfortunately this train was going nowhere..

I was surprised by the attention to detail on the paint job with the little cast plates on the side of the loco being painted light blue for WATER and red for whatever it signified, I forgot what it said now.

NORTH  GEELONG  YARD
25th September 2014 

Received information (intel) that the stored locos at North Geelong Yard had been moved out into the open and were being drained of their ‘essential fluids’ - no doubt prior to being disposed of (cut up). Have no idea which ones are destined for scrapping and or which ones may be saved. These pictures were taken with the permission in the yard at North Geelong the following day.

The locos in the yard were made up from the H, P, T and Y classes and included:
T388-P21-P23-Y122-H4-T402-H5-P19-Y174.  Y165-T396-H2-T374-Y118-Y171-H3.
