What's so special about SMR 23 on that page?
Newcastle Express
SMR 23 was painted in Royal blue with light blue lining sometime in the mid to late 1950s.

She was still in those c ...

[quote=M636C]That would support my view that the silver fans were introduced in the mid 1980s, since my earlier photos don't show them.

Possibly the locomotives used on lease in Victoria preceded t ...

[quote=sydneyshortnorth]For the sake of brevity I won't re-quote all of DQ2004's interesting post above, but I'd like to pick up on just this one line:

[quote=M636C]Toby,

What are the dates of the photos showing the silver fans? I only have photos of one unit with silver fans among a number of photos of locomotives in that livery, and that dates t ...

[quote=M636C]

I think your reference to "modern versions" is misleading.

It is true that Southern are modelling the units with modified cab air conditioning (the four Australia Northern units and ...

[quote=M636C]Having checked the facebook page, the Clyde badge on L270 is shown as red whereas I recall it as being blue.

I agree, an invoice at some random point in time is far better than no invoice at all.

I'm sure I don't need to name those model companies that don't do this.

The cats whisker scheme actually started to be applied in 1964, I can remember the first of them arriving exh Chullora when I was a cleaner there in that year. As per usual with e ...

I was not surprised to see 4634 sell first as it is the only one of two 46's in the 1968-77 'cats whiskers' scheme. From 1977 those modified either at Valley Heights or Chullora either received silver ...

Well I think some award (the Eureka prize) should be given to ROCO whose F class came out early!

Did Eureka or Powerline actually release anything this year?

Well I will be counting the 48 class as a 2014 release. Obviously not the 830 since apparently none of them have arrived as yet, at least not so far as anyone's mentioned.

Bob's website has been updated late today (or tonight, most likely).

The 48 class news now at the top (someone listened) and see the link for the info:

I've moved it.

It does look like that may be possible. But then again, there are so many variations on offer, that this could be a big ask.

The post was just about noting that we had mentioned the 421 as early as March, as well as the recent revelation of SDS Models entering the RACE.
