Hmmm , yes I saw the old thread message .... and considered it, and the topic (NR class Repaints) has not changed at all.  This is not a "reply" as such but a continuation of a topic which saw a progressive update from various contributors.

Sooooooooooooooooooooo...

I see on Flickr that a number of NR's have recently been repainted.



NR18 has gone from its unique Indian Pacific yellow / orange to the new Journey Beyond Ghan red scheme.

NR45 has new PN blue and yellow with 5 stars.

NR55 has new PN blue and yellow with 5 stars.

NR85 has had the GSR Souther Spirit green & white repainted to PN blue and yellow.

NR121 has new PN blue and yellow with 5 stars.


Thank you to the photographers submitting photos on Flickr  Smile

NR1 has been repainted in PN blue and yellow with 5 stars.  The front of the loco had substantial loss of paint and surface rust.

NR31 has been repainted from the standard Pacific National blue and yellow to a new Journey Beyond orange paint scheme for the Great Southern train which commences December this year.  The loco is orange and white featuring the Great Southern name and a kangaroo.  Photos are available on Journey Beyonds Facebook page.

I'm guessing a second NR may get painted into this scheme.  Maybe NR30 which was looking in need of attention ....

That's a bright one.

Very striking. Kind of reminds me of National Rail colours. They were great, especially when matched with the other colours of the Australian landscape.

It's a matter of opinion of course, but I reckon NR 31 looks bloody awful.

Many thanks for the information  Smile   I was only guessing NR30 due to NR's 25 through to 29 are already in GSR / Journey Beyond paint schemes , , , it seemed probable.

I think NR84 is on borrowed time in its Southern Spirit scheme and will head back to a PN blue and yellow.  

Wonder when NR48 and NR81 will get their PN name reapplied  ???? ... ever ??
