One of the two R&R 30 tonners is in working order in the Bridge Engineers Workshop Compound at Dematagoda.
The other is in Ratmalana Works for overhaul, together with one of the small Graftons.
Two other Graftons and a Thomas Smith are also present; though not all in working condition.

If you plan to visit write to :
Bridge Engineers Office, Bridge Workshop,
413, Danister de Silva, Dematagoda, Mawatha, Colombo 09
Phone 0112685946.

The Cowans Sheldon breakdown crane continues in service and is now kept at the diesel hydraulic depot. ( the 1991 Gottwald is stopped due to lack of spares and latterly no certified driver )
