Yes, it was the fourth unit of five on POWA yesterday (317, 330, 334, 511, and 510), and was the second unit on WAPO today (510, 511, 330, and the 317).

I caught a glimpse of the Smurf at Rigby yesterday morning, second unit out of four or five.

The smurfs are extinct now. 511 is sporting a new coat of dark blue.

Much the same as 614, blue above the frame, black below. No nose logo like most of the more recent 500 repaints. Does have wings though. Looks pretty good all in all...

So far, any photos or videos of the "new" paint #511 showed it trailing.
Back in April, it was listed above as "trail only". PAR wouldn't just
paint it and not fix it, would they? :-)

Heh, of course they would, because they did. Still has the same defects as it did before. 614 was the same way too.

Now that the Smurfs are officially extinct, further discussion of 511 should take place in the 500-series topic:
