With the closure and wiping out of Delec locomotive depot, scenes like this could never be repeated, even with locomotives of modern classes. It is hard to blieve that this busy depot, which once saw my attendence nearly every weekend, is currently just a dirt plot awaiting redevelopment. Back when it was a busy locomotive servicing location, 4427 is seen shunting around.

Goulburn trains at Sydney Terminal are a reoccuring theme during our 44 class celebration. This reflects both their regularity on these services, as well as my frequent visiting the station for them.
This time it is the turn of 4442.
The days are numbered for 4435. Heavily stripped, she sits outside Chullora workshops awaiting scrapping.
What is believed to be the last run of 4433, seen here at Bulli while returning from a passenger run from Sydney to Moss Vale via the Wollongong route.
A few days later she was noted at Delec withdrawn, subsequently taken to Cardiff where she was scrapped.
