Peter do you know if Samlov still have the carcass of the other STA Mk2 0305 sitting in their depot yard? This might be the only way to determine which one is living and the other dead.Or if have you time go for a ride on it or catch it at the end of its run.

I came across this photo of what seems to be one of them in use in Tonga in 2015

And guess it would be the one that became B527 if only one was put into service
