One of them over east, not sure if it was Vic or SA, there may only be one, had boiler damage from rapid heating trying to raise steam in two hours or something. It was mentionioned on RP somewhere so you may find it searching.

A quick search, the V class is in Vic. The V in SA might be mistaken for a W.

V1206 survived the cutters torch right up to 1982...... then was lost to scrap.



Cheers all.

Maybe the person is thinking of PMR720 at Peterborough Museum. They did as written on their website in the early days consider WAGR "V" & "S" class locos but rejected them because of their high axle load and settled for WAGR PMR & W Class locos
