526 was scrapped in 1971 after a period of railtour use, being replaced in this role by 520. However some components were retained as heavy spares for sister No.520, notably the driving wheels which are stored at the SteamRanger depot at Mt Barker. 

526's distinctive nosecone (including chimney and road numbers) was apparently also saved by someone and restored, as they were advertised for private sale in April 2003.
