Imagine it was a classic case of smoke and mirrors.....Agreed on that mate..
No hint of the C as a result. Does not mean its not lurking out there somewhere but I think many folks (myself included) believed it was the loco. I still think its coming - just a matter or when.
I'm quite happy it was the SCT loco - its not my era so I can bypass this one and save some money.
Agreed on that mate..Yeah I have been really lucky since Auscision has turned to NSW, I have happily not bought the 45, and I don't want these modern engines. I will not run Electric because I cant stand the idea of running pantos and no o/h and am too lazy to complicate things with o/h.
At least the SCT is a Victorian locomotive.We're not.
The Downer EDI order had an LV prefix previously used for VR and V/Line locomotives.
So we can't have people complaining that Victoria is being ignored .....
And imagine what the Aboriginal liveries could command in licensing costs...? They were professionally designed, not just copied from a rock painting, so someone is going to want money I'd suspect... That's what stopped Austrains doing them all those years ago, the factory was quite happy to do them.
Blog update 13/3, all the colours of the rainbow... Image is also on facebook where someone queried NR16's unique livery. Graham from OTM pointed out license costs for that one livery alone was over $18000 3 years ago!
