Based on what has been said in this thread, C3861 and C3912 have been moved around (which has been the case for the other cars to make the preserved list), but it is hard to say whether they will make it. These 2 cars are stand outs in so far as appearance/body condition from what I've seen out of the Comeng power cars, particularly the front cab/faces which over time some cars have appeared like they have passed through some battle fields! 3861 and 3862 were apparently delivered in December 1974 although 3861 didn't enter service until February 1975, 2 months after 3862 which entered service shortly after delivered. From what I've seen of both cars, I think C3861 would've been the more ideal preservation pick due to it's appearance of the front cab face. I believe C3862 once had an experimental route indicator fitted to it temporarily which is why it's got like a small plugged up hole to the top right of/above the driver's cab window.
Whatever the case, props goes to Sydney Trains, THNSW and all those who lobbied or worked to get this many cars preserved. A total of 14. Will be interesting to see the final 4. There is a public farewell trip also planned for July 21 so between that and the recent staff/invite only farewell they've certainly been/will get a good send off
