Sydney Trains S Set - Scrapping has recommenced :(

 
  C3765 Junior Train Controller

Just as I suspected S142 was withdrawn and sent to Chullora, although the full set may not have been sent. T4095 which was part of S142 may have been taken off the set before it was sent as it was the last Comeng built trailer carriage.

T4095 was not preserved and sent to Chullora as part of S142. S101 is currently there saw well with S114

Cars T4975 and T4019 of S46 have also been sighted at Chullora suggesting that S46 has been withdrawn from service as well. It was probably sent with S101,S114 and S142

Where's 3883 & 3908(the other cars in S46)?
  C3765 Junior Train Controller

Yeah I think C3883 and C3908 were there too, just not 100% sure as the carriage number was covered in those two.

What are the status of each S-Set?
  S100S28 Station Master

Does anyone know the location of S137? I was riding on it back in the beginning of last month and it had a faulty door system air leak. Has it retired or been scrapped yet?

Not sure if this is true but I was told S89, S105 and S107 have retired. Does anyone know?
  C3765 Junior Train Controller

I think S107 has been retired not sure about the other two but with B13 now in service and B14 following soon it is highly likely the other two were withdrawn too. If so, there are only 25 left in service.
  C3888 Station Staff

If this is true, then there are only 100 carriages left. That means 409 carriages have been withdrawn in their lifetime. (Please correct if I'm wrong)
  S100S28 Station Master

Been confirmed that S89, S105 and S107 have retired and will be sent to Chullora for scrapping this week along with S81.
  S100S28 Station Master

I think S107 has been retired not sure about the other two but with B13 now in service and B14 following soon it is highly likely the other two were withdrawn too. If so, there are only 25 left in service.

B14 is not in Sydney yet. B15 and B17 are in AMF with B15 the next set in service. B16 has recently entered service.

The maths adds up. Almost 16 B sets in service with another 8 to go plus 17 just ordered makes a neat 25 which equals the number of S sets left. 25. Not long now.
  C3888 Station Staff

96 carriages left... Sad
  C3765 Junior Train Controller

There are still 25 sets/100 carriages left. S81 was withdrawn a few weeks ago so was already counted in the 23 withdrawn sets.
