At this point in time, the livery is trying to be kept under wraps until the official public launch - so although I have other photos to verify this livery is the real thing (and even though I've stated I've seen it in person myself, that doesn't seem to be enough) - I won't be posting any photos.

I was with matt when we saw the cars. We were told not to let any photos out. Yes the photo of the H car is real. And Yes i think it looks good. When you see a set altogeather. Like it or not shacks you won't see any photos from those of us that took the tour through EDI. Go and have a look at the thread from a couple of weeks back about the tour. [/quote]

No, it won't. Didn't get transferred on Friday ex Newport Workshops account defective batteries with some of the BS cars.

Won't be transferred til sometime this coming week.

Goo because I can't make it on Monday hopefully it is on Thursday, well for my sake atleast. I know Matt you wouldn't mind for it to run that Marshall service on Thursday cause you mentioned that you only have morning classes.

I am not doubting the livery, I am saying the photo in question is a fake.
  VBAndy Chief Commissioner

The photo is 100% authentic, the livery is real.

Find something else to debate.

No, the photo is not a fake. My guess is it was taken with a trashy phone camera.
Honestly, you're not that much of an expert on photography. Rolling Eyes

Car set SN7 will remain at Newport for the next 3 to 7 days because of battery faults with the cars. I will try to post the details of when the set will leave Newport when the details are available.
"stinky"


I am now hearing that SN7 will not be out of Newport earlier than Friday and that is dependant on repairs being completed to the cars. Before anyone asked I don't know exactly what the repairs are but can only guess they are battery/generator faults.

The pressure builds....it would only be slightly embarrassing for Vline to promise all these extra services and seats coming on Sept 30 then not being able to deliver because they can't get these BS cars up and running again  Twisted Evil

Eeew. That just look wrong.

There's plenty of critiquing to do, but it just looks weird.

Notice in Matt's V/Line Cars photo;

That the grey almost blends straight into the mountain range behind it... Probably not the best thing if you're trying to achieve a hi-vis livery.  Laughing

I don't like the end howver the side looks good, I never like the heritage blue and red anyway.

Not a big fan of it overall, but the doors really look odd, and really out of place...

The five BS cars involved are all ex the old sg SOP and as such are full head end power cars . Thus they derive power solely for lighting and air conditioning from the HEP train line which has the power supplied either from a HEP loco or powervan. Therefore none of this type of BS car have any generators . There is however emergency lighting which is powered from underfloor battery boxes which are charged by individual battery chargers powered off the HEP train line .

I don't quite comput what you meant by "heritage blue and red".. heritage Victorian Railways "blue and gold" I understand...

As for V/line's heritage colours so to speak would be refering to the "tangerine and grey.. or was it all tangerine"

But... really can't say your wrong, as in a few years time when V/line is running around with this new livery and everyone will be custom to it.. then looking back to the V/line Passenger MKI or MKII (Blue and Red) would be somewhat class as heritage..
