Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knew if the NSWGR had made any 'original drawings' of the S sets, as I cannot find anything on this topic. I am not sure if such drawings actually exist, and if so could you please post them on this page? I am mostly looking for the Mk1 (Series 1) S set power car drawings, as I am currently doing research on that particular batch.

Thanks guys,

Thanks cityrail-rulez, for the link to 'Coals To Newcastle' (http://www.coalstonewcastle.com.au/plan/documents/). I really appreciate it and it really helped with my research. I will consider buying the plans for the NSWGR Electrics, and possibly some of the other plans too.

Thanks again guys,

The magazine "Railway Transportation" covered these cars when they emerged. There was a reproduction of the diagram published and a number of black and white photos of both the exterior and interior. This was reprinted as a brochure for Comeng, but I doubt you'll find one of those today. Both the magazine and brochure had a full colour cover with an eight car train in the original Tuscan Red.

The magazine is available from the ARHS NSW as a CD ROM. It also later covered the unpainted stainless steel cars.

3813 was one of the first cars repainted blue and white with the original low white stripe and was on the train that opened the Como Bridge.

Thanks M636C, for that information. And that info about my namesake is very interesting, which speaking of which, is C3813 being preserved? And was C3805 ever in Shirley Blue, or did it wear Tuscan Red until Indian Redwas applied to the painted S set fleet?
