One appears to be in ex-CRT blue livery the other ex-Indian Red (willing to stand corrected).
Anyone have any knowledge as to where they may have come from and where they may be going too?
What do you expect NSW Trains to do with it?I believe that 7301, as well as the two 48's and the CountryLink rolling stock is still owned by "Sydney Trains" as they inherited all of the above and below rail assets in the split. NSWTrains/TrainLink just "use" the rolling stock.
It's going to be a busy yard at Nowra (Bomaderry) with 7322, 7333, 7315 and 7319 all in the Manildra Yard.7319 when sold by ARHS ACT was in a non-operational condition, whilst 7315 was in operating condition. But that was several years ago.
They will probably try to make at least one working loco from all three locos. One of the 73's (7319?) was stopped a while ago and apparently is now an organ donor for the other loco.
Must be hard to get spares for these old workhorses.
At least they weren't scrapped!
7319 when sold by ARHS ACT was in a non-operational condition, whilst 7315 was in operating condition. But that was several years ago.So, 2 organ donors and 2 working(?) locos. It will be like a spare parts shop for 73's.
