You're not far off. The information forwarded on to me included a description of the colour scheme, but I don't want to ruin the surprise. Guess people will need to get out and see the movement for themselves! Not often that one finds a chance to photograph freight locomotives on a passenger train, even less likely for such an event to be advertised!

Many thanks, Raichase! It sounds to be a great event, and I eagerly anticipate it.

Black Caviar never ran in a Melbourne Cup.  She is a sprinter not a stayer.

My sources told me that this information was not meant to be made public before the media release was issued.  Very disappointing ...

I'm terribly sorry to hear that. I was passed this information from CFCL Australia, so perhaps your sources are incorrect.

My sources confirmed your sources were incorrect. I won't name my source though as that could provide validation toward the ill-informed nature of my sources...though they are never wrong.

Well your hard work has just been undone as Bevans has just let the cat out of the bag and spoilt the surprise.

This image is on most other sites, it is hardly a secret however apologies to those who did not have an idea of the livery and have not looked at the many other places on the internet which those images are already available.

I had my doubts, but the paint job looks surprisingly good! Well done to whoever thought up the idea.

These photo's have been lifted from the TDU facebook group, not sure on the first, but the second is by John Valentine. Please credit the photographers when using their photo's. It not hurt to also let the photographer know you plan to use their photo.
