Hey CM,

I have also noticed that. Domain registries have been in place for both operating companies since late 2012.
I believe they could be going live between now and sometime in the morning, but that it just my guess.

Sydney trains website is now up and running- looks identical to cityrail.info.... NSW trains website is not yet running as of 0200 hrs it's requesting a password to access it.

Checked it out a few minutes ago. Not bad. I loved CityRail, but I am looking forward to the new operator. The website layout is basically the same.

Well be prepared to be disappointed. A37 and A45 have been painted orange on their sides. (Guards door).

^^ A41 and A44 have also got the orange touch

Colour coding, so people can tell the vehicle they are boarding is in fact a train and not a ferry.

My whinge is that NSW intercity is not on the NSW TrainLink website yet but on the Sydney Trains website. This will confuse a lot of people.

I must say the new NSW trains website is much more appealing than the older countrylink one.

The Network Map is still CountryLink on the NSW trains website:

The orange on the Waratah sets is not paint, it is a decal.

Do you think the Endeavour railcars will get the NSW Trainlink Livery?

Whoops. Sorry about that.

I could. I wouldn't mind seeing it if it were real. I do like the new logos being put on the A sets and V1 and V16. And despite its pure dislike by many, I actually like the V set refurb. It's a step ahead to keep the most comforting train in Sydney going.

I would then venture to say that something - new front, decal, whatever - should be in the offing for the Oscars, and perhaps the Mills too.

This is just a fail mock up of what the Endeavour could look like for NSW Trainlink, the yellow is darker because it is under a shadow from the station

I've been told that the OSCars will have red/orange fronts where the blue is now. As for the Endeavour/Xplorer/Hunter/XPT scheme, one can only imagine.

This is the problem with having so many threads on the one topic, information gets lost between all of them!

Lets just hope the awful purple interior treatment is only for the V sets and that the OSCARS don't get that aswell

the design actually doesn't look too bad compared to the V set which is no other words is ulgy as ****(sorry). on the other hand the Waratah doesn't look too bad.

anyways heres my Tangara and OSCar mockups. found some google sketchup projects (thanks to the creators) and changed the colours
