I thought North Yard was closed years ago?

Photo 
Not a network observation so much as a internet one, was browsing flickr and came across this photo of stored 2814 - loco involved in Julia Creek sulphuric acid derailment (good to see still on rails at least, although naturally worse for wear)
also interesting to note 1770D sitting behind in front, a named locomotive (James Cook)

The comment on the photo describes these locomotives as "stored". I believe 1770D (James Cook) has been officially withdrawn from service for many years, but was often used to shunt Redbank shops.
