It actually doesn't look as bad as I imagined. I'd be happier with a few brighter colours on it, but oh well...

It's got a very 1990s British look to it.

I believe this is the final livery..there were 2 others in the shop and one of them was having the vline stencil removed

Well, it's not as bad as I had imagioned it too be... The white doors won't remain white for long, that's for sure... Hopefully this "New VLP" Colour scheme has two divisions: "Interurban" to be applied to all H sets as seen in the foto & "Inter City" to be applied to all N sets/Z Cars & S cars... Here's hoping the Intercity Livery is a bit more "creative"...

Practicality wise in a rail environment based on past experience the white doors and light grey below the window line will get filthy in a hurry, and be difficult to keep clean .

The mockups I saw were of N cars in exactly the same scheme as the previously posted H car...

I am also glad someone finally posted a shot.

Colors will blend in with the sky on a cloudy day, not very wise for level crossings.

Need a maginfying glass to read V/line logo.

Stakeholders are going to be unimpressed.

Just so much dam depressing Grey...

A colour scheme simular to this:
(No not the 2 V/L Tang. & Grey N Classes incase ya wondering... I'm talking abt what ACZ 257, State 5 & Norman are painted in: The V/L Royal Colour scheme):  

Thanks to: Mark Beu's Victorian Railways.net Website
But with some modern touches added to it to bring it into the 21C, I think I could come to like quite well, as the White on the window line brakes up the grey, just like the White did/currently does on the VLP Regal scheme (Red/White/Blue)...

you've got bugger all chance of taking photos of the livery, let alone seeing photos on the net, until the set is transferred.

Looks like vlinecars was proven wrong! Wouldn't be the first time. Laughing

Hehe

I just didn't think anyone on these forums would be in the position to be able to post any shots legitimately thats all!

And yes, I was proven wrong, like I have been other times! We're all human  Laughing

I think it actually looks quite smart, and will suit the sprinters alot more than the loco hauled cars.

The real test will be how they do the locos.

I don't think that it looks that good. I prefer the current V/Line Passenger livery!

As I'm sure I've said before, this livery is pathetic in terms of visability. The Vlocity's are hard to see in the country as it is... this is a step backwards.

YT tried grey, and moved away from it.

I don't think this scheme will remain in this form for long.

Agree with you 100% there Nexas. Hope the livery doesn't last long at all!!!!!

Who's bright idea was this paint job? In this day and age of high visibility, why would you paint something in a dark grey colour?

The blue and yellow livery was just superb. It weathered well, looked very refined. While the overall colour was dark, the two yellow stripes contrast quite well with the dark blue and make it stand out. The red on the wooden cars wasn't too bad and certainly was quite visible.

While I think the original tangerine and silver stripe livery was rather hideous and very 80's, I quite liked the later version with the orange sides, grey roof and white & green stripes below the window lines. This combination of bright colours was also one of the most highly visible liveries, even at night.

I never really liked the red with white stripe at window line, but at least it was still reasonably visible with the broad white stripe and it grew on me over the years.

This livery is just plain horrible. It's dull, not even remotely high vis and I think it will become a dirty brown/grey colour once a bit of road grime gets onto it. It's certainly not a colour that would make me want to travel in that carriage.

does beg the question about locos doesnt it.

Seems to suit isolated cars.. that leading graphic might look a tad overdone on a biggish lahup.

Cant help thinking like some others. that there's a band missing.
Still , we can sleep well knowing someone got a lot of money for that !! lol

I thought the SCT G's had the crappiest livery going around, turns out I was wrong.

You really would think with OH&S etc that there would be some form of bright yellow...maybe orange or green incorporated in to the livery wouldn't ya? Looking at the new livery now...they'd be better off keeping the maroon crap they have now. Bring back the Blue & Gold I say Razz
