According to the ICRS Tracks magazine for January it records the following : C stock arrivals 5723 6723 5513 6513 5600 6600 5606 6606 5504 6504 5711 6711 5718 6718 5514 6514 5719 6719 5597 6597 5571 6571 5731 6731 5724 6724 5535 6535
I know where you read, as indeed did I on the "infallible" Wikipedia, it stated they'd be the last to go, but like DStock7080 said, they're gone already.
The statement on the Wikipedia page about C stock (re a rebuilt C08 going to be saved) needed a citation... and remained needing a citation for more than a year...
I always took the view that someone had made an uneducated guess and then posted, hoping that it might be right !!
The longer a statement needs a citation (i.e. proof) the less accurate it is in reality !!!

And (forgive me for going off topic) that is the main problem with Wikipedia, half the time it is used to voice hopes/opinions. I remember seeing on the 1967 Stock someone posting, "Deez r sik, 67 Stock 4 eva." And equally getting into a battle against someone who insisted that the A Stock started service in 1959, ultimately I won, and I think antje also helped me win the battle.
Back on topic, Bengley took some photos of the C Stock getting done at CF Booth, would I be right in saying that the majority of the rolling stock is going to Eastleigh in this contract?
