A VL in QUBE colours would look interesting.

Nothing would make the horrible looking things interesting but who cares as long as they work.

A link to a local newspaper site has been posted by Dirty Ballast in the" Qube to take over Maryvale" thead within the Victorian forum. The newspaper article states that Qube will use an 1100 class and new rolling stock on the Maryvale and new additional traffic from a new freight terminal to be built nearby. On the face of it the journalist's info is most likely to have come from a Qube  press release, so it should be accurate.
There is no mention of the VL but there will still be a requirement for another loco to go back to back with the 1100.

VL's arrival on 9471/2 is immanent. I'll check later to see if it's on tonights train. The 1100(s) are EXTRA locos.

Is the VL already accredited for victrack/broad gauge operation or will it have to under go testing before entering broad gauge service?

VL is ready just requires main line tests and papers to be sorted.
I will try and keep you informed as to when it will appear on the Maryvale service.

Looks like V/Line's Network Access Plan Addenda was updated on Wednesday 4th September 2013 with details of the VL added.
