Apologies in advance if there is already a topic covering this one ( I couldn't quickly locate it).  I'm looking for the suburb & street of the VR GM Cab that is poking out of the side of someones house.  Would like to see via Google Maps & any info on it.   Thanks in advance.

For some years, the nose of a VR S or B class loco, in blue and gold livery, was poking out of the Station Hotel in Greville Street, Prahran (Melbourne). Is this the one you're thinking of?  I understand that it was removed some years ago.

Yes, that is the one, any clues on where it is now?  And how did it come to be? (loco was in an accident?) thanks in advance.

He is the owner.
