(News to Me) Last Run of the 86 Class?

Coote Industrial (owner/operator of Southern & Silverton) today railed two of their final 86 class west into Lithgow, possibly for scrapping. Cs5 lead the two 86 Class (8609/8622) as well as a short rake of container flats from Enfield to Lithgow today. Unfortunatly, I was unable to get photos of the movement.

  1. Even though i was never a real fan of the electric fleet while i used to be an engineman at Enfield;
    ie 46, 85 & 86 class electric locomotives,
    but they are still part of the NSW Rail history.

    But surely they could be either donated or even a small token payment taken to be used in a
    rail museum or similar organisation.

    Scrapping them is just a real waste and no real monetary value in scrap cash.
