Remaining Orange V/Line liveried stock

Is there much? I know most of VLP's Ps are still orange, plus a couple of SH sets and D vans. The PCJs and one or two of the PHs have their own version of V/Line. The rest of VLP is all red/blue.

What about FA? I think most of the locos are green now (haven't seen all the Ys), what about wagons?

V/Line Passenger Orange Stock
LOCOS:
N467, P12, P13, P14, P16, P17, P18, Y156, Y161

SETS:
SH30 (BCH130-BIH190-BTH170), SH31 (BCH131-BIH191-BTH171)

VANS:
POWER: PCJ491, PCJ492, PH452
PARCEL: DN403, D335.

DISUSED/DAMAGED CARRIAGES:
Damaged: ACZ260, BS203
Mildura Sleeper: SJ281, SJ282, SJ283, SJ284, SZ287

I know that at least one PH is in blue, with a white V LINE and a red /.
I don't think that there are any more parcel vans than the two mentioned in orange, but I am not sure.

The damaged cars should be in orange, I would imagine, and if the Mildura sleepers are still owned by VLP, I would imagine that they are still orange.

Also, BCZ258 (if it is not being converted to a BTN or BZN at this moment), would also be in the orange livery.
--------------------------------------------------------------------
I am 90% sure that all of FA's locos, other than S301, S306, S307 & S310, and Y124, Y142 & Y147, are all in FA livery of somesort.
There are four or five RT's in FA Yellow, with an FA Logo, but the rest which are operational I would assume would be orange.

Some VPCX's & VLCX's are not in FA green. Most of the stabled stock at Tottenham Yard as well isn't green, not that the stock there would probably be able to be used! As far as I know, most of it has just been sitting there, rotting away. Also, some containers seen on wagon flats, still have the grey background, and the V/LINE FREIGHT logo on them.

Anyone want to add to the FA list (not that I think there are much more wagons still with V/LINE on them)?

I didn't think they were ever orange. The PCJs were grey/silver (the Overland maroon was painted over), and the PHs were grey all over.

Sorry,  I stuffed up with that. I didn't mean to put the PCJs & PHs as orange. They never have been, and its highly likely they never will be.

The three (3)  PH  power vans have always had a distinctively different livery so that opeartional staff could easily distinguish between power vans and D  vans.  Initially the PH power vans were grey with white logo and green slash, and they are being converted to  royal blue with white logo and red slash. The PCJ powervans (2 of)  are grey with white logos and green slash. There is a colour scheme to convert them to blue with the white logo and red slash also.   The reason the P class locos and  H sets are still in orange is that it was expected that the P class and some of the H cars would be phased out with the introduction of V/Locity DMU's. However  patronage growth and late delivery of DMU's means that all the H cars will probably be around for a while yet . But expect the P class to be sold to FA or be phased out by VLP  at an early date as they are old locos (1955 re-builds) and really pretty gutless by VLP hp standards these days. The P class also require 2 man crew which is a further draw back.

i wonder if V/line will use the ex vinelander stock for the train to mildura

I'm hoping WCR will get the contract and buy them. Also the ex-Overland stock it has sitting doing nothing at Ballarat East.

most likely not because the vinelander cars are in east block with most of them on blocks and the others need a patch up.

Only one set left, can't remeber which off the top of my head.


P14 and N467 are both in the new livery.

Matt,

I'm pretty certain that SH30 is red, not orange.

I'll check again tonight, as SH31 and SH30 always seem to be parked in platform 3 when I'm on my way home from work on Wednesday nights.

In case you don't realise it I'm the one who gave you simmilar info a few weeks ago.

You are quite correct Ben, SH31 is the ONLY carriage set left in V/Line orange (well pinky/orange now) in service with VLP.
I were lucky enough to get photos of it about 3 weeks ago.

Isn't VRS231 still orange? Last I checked it was in storage at Newport.

VRS 231 has been allocted to the ARHS museum. The remaining two are owned privately in SA, one is in blue and gold.

Y142 and Y147 have been painted in FA green; only Y124 remains V/Line.

Preservation wise T375 and T378 are in V/Line, and T395, which I haven't seern for some time - have SRV painted it?  Also the stored Y's and T382 in Dynon are also in V/Line.  

Also becoming rare are lcoomotives lettered Freight Victoria - only G515, X37 and X49 remain with that lettering.

Wouldn't WCR if they get the Mildura contract - which is looking unlikely - use the Overland sleepers?  I have been told that the bogies for the SJ's are very hard to get hold of...

Aren't they bog-standard Commonwealth bogies? Or S/Z bogies?

T395 is still in VLINE orange it is in west block having an overhaul and a full repaint into blue and gold.

Earlier in the week there was an S class in the good old orange V/line logo, in the North Geelong freight yard, then the next morning, at around 8 it was at the turntable, with a FA X class. they were turning the S around 'backwards'

Ah, at last someone else who likes the V/line livery!
  zipitidoodah Chief Commissioner

They should do a repaint of something in traditional V/Line grey and orange. Just one loco would do it.

Out of all the liveries, the orange & grey V/Line one is one of my favourites. It is a pity I didn't start taking photos before 2000, as I would have got quite a few more V/Line orange & grey liveried loco & rollingstock photos. Ah well.

becuase the v/line orange and grey livery is a thing of the past, locos that r restored now mayb painted in that colour.

When an A, G, N or P is eventually preserved, the V/Line livery would be most appropriate.

I think it was vicsig who pointed out that P14 is now in the new livery.

It was at Spencer Street yesterday, and looked resplendent. Even the exhaust stacks were painted (blue).

"excl"


That is correct.

Actually today I got a photo down at the Dudley St sidings of:
P20 (FA), P18 (V/Line Orange) and P14 (V/Line Blue) all side by side.

Pity P14 was facing the other way.

What was the FA P doing at Dudley Street?
