Well they have been Stored in the Dry Creek South broad gauge yard for many Years [15 maybe more??? ]  But all the old AOOX open wagons are getting cut up and some old Australian national flats as well.

Pulled off their Bogies on to the roadway and then cut in 2,

Not much use for their Broad gauge bogies so maybe they will get scrapped as well.

If the BG bogies are roller bearing they might get regauged as bogies like that do not fall of the back of a truck these days. Simply a case of new wheels and axles and they are good again on SG. If no good then scrapping will be the order of the day though!
