So long as we don't go to anything grey
. I don't see visibilty, safety and the travelling public (and crews!) being served by having grey all over the front
wongm's picture of N470 exiting South Geelong tunnel
is brilliant, look at that cowcatcher. Unfortunately, they fade, and you only have to look at N475 a few pictures earlier
to see how visibility needs all the real estate it can get. Nothing wrong with that picture, but the loco just does not cut the mustard with visibility. You can look above on this page to see the somewhat unfortunate placement of the white band and tail disc on the front of N473
locomotives, is all I say.
No. Put bright shiny colours on the engines. Consider some of the colours with the various backgrounds and loss of light here
by a Railpage user, rino54 of France.) Lime green
it really stands out. Nobody can deny. Check it out at the start. So what other colours stand out? I think the Sprinter is going to a much brigher red, and I wonder if it is missing the silver stripes?
Looks like yet another variation in Sprinter livery is on the cards,7015 was spotted at EDI Newport today with a mainly red cowcatcher as opposed to black with silver lining.
I took a shot through the fence,it's not the best as there was a large support beam in the way but you'll get the general idea.
