Last BS car run July 2006

By 2006 there were only three BS type carriages in revenue service with V/Line, and as the year continued all except BS217 were put into storage. By July BS217 was to be taken out of service, with the last run being on a down Albury train, terminated short at Seymour for trackwork. As it turns out, by September 2007 all five BS cars were brought back into service, as set SN7, which didn't get retired until August 9, 2010!
