CSR class first run dates

Heyo all, I'm trying to track down the first runs of the 10 SCT CSR 'Sugarcubes' for my notes and was wondering if anyone kept track of their first runs when they were new?

All I have is 2012 for them all which is a bit too vague for my liking and the longer it is the harder the info might become to find (Not that they entered service recently as it is)

They were delivered in two batches:

CSR 001-CSR 006 arrived on 4 February 2012 and were hauled to Penfield on 5 February 2012. These were lettered SCT.

Presumably they made their initial runs later that month.

From Wikipedia
Testing started in early 2012, which included hauling a large iron ore train at up to 130 km/h (81 mph) between  Port Augusta and Adelaide. The locomotives passed their introductory tests on 5 March 2012, allowing operations on mainline routes in Australia to commence. On 16 March 2012 two locomotives (initially numbered CSR001 and CSR002) successfully hauled a 8,080 t (7,950 long tons; 8,910 short tons) train on a 1% grade, completing SCT's tests.

I believe the second batch of SCT's CSR class (CSR 007 - CSR010) arrived with SBR logos

From the RP thread...

"The other four units arrive in Adelaide on the 5 of November.
They will have SBR on the side of them. "

This wasn't contradicted later...
