1720's - Operational, stored or scrapped?
Yeah, it went east through Oakey while I was watching the goings on at the stranded coal wagon - 1762 definitely sounded different as it went under the overpass bridge. I took some photos of it.Confusedmitten

I guess this might be pertitent here...more of historical importance...

Sighted a 1720 in Mayne yard on Friday. The road number had pretty much faded off on the right side under the cab window, could barely make the outline of it. I don't know if it was 1759D??

Probably 1769D. It's pretty well faded to the point of almost no paint left!
