S317 New Scheme?

 
  monday Chief Commissioner

Heard a rumour around the traps that S317 has got a new colour scheme and may have gone for a test run between State Mine Gully and Eskbank today....

Wondering if anyone saw it and has pictures of it in the new scheme.

It was explained to me to be reminiscent of an old AN colour scheme of sorts.

Must have been the change of jobs and career so subtle that I did not even notice, still there you go.  I do know a couple of the guys at SSR.

I worked on that filthy thing last week. Yeah It's been re-painted. It's not great but not too bad. I can't tell you what it has been painted like though.

Does anyone know what happened to the "Sir John Monash" nameplates it carried when new?

No but I can definitely say they were not fitted on the locomotive a week ago.

I have just seen a pic of S317 - won't post here as I'm unsure of the original photographers wishes. We can rest assured more pics will surface shortly.

But to describe it. hmm. Basically looks like a CLP in green/yellow/silver but replace the green with black.

Any other loco's getting similar treatment?

S302 perhaps?

Agree - design is not new. More or less the same as a CR/AN design that I did up donkeys years ago and which ultimately appeared on some CL locos.

Question to those that know is.
Why not S302 First?
S302 unlike S317 is not even in their own corporate colours new or old.

Now, If I remember right S317 needed more bodywork compared to S302.

SSR love their Bulldogs, the AN/CLP paint looks awesome.
They should buy QUBES 44's and give them the same treatment, prolly better on fuel.

That's a fairly good reason.
Love to see S302 done and them back to back.
