At least in theory, the "phantom GWUs" became 9318 and 9319 and 9320 was one more new unit built later.Hi all.
6041 and 6042 are sitting at Hexham at the moment. The CF repaints? Excellent effort by UGL , I must say. They've done a million dollar job. Paint is immaculate. Also , the wheels and tms are brand new, even the brake blocks. And every zinc plated bolt, even up inside the undergear is shiny new. Hose clamps and crimp fittings new too. Even the hoses everywhere aren't painted, you can read the part numbers. Not a dent or mark anywhere. All the fuel fittings and gadgets are new. And topped it all off with new builders plates.
6041 is R-0147-02/17-527
6042 is R-0147-02/17-528
5007 is nearby. A downer repaint with none of the above luxuries.
CF units still in CF colours as of about 10 days ago.
Aren't these the phantom GWUs?
It was said that PN cleaned out all the unsold units at Broadmeadow.
Of course, it is hard to tell the difference between unnumbered units in grey undercoat, so it is just possible there were two more. However, I'd only believe that if I saw CF4401 and CF 4409 standing next to 6041 and 6042.
Does 5007 have the large italic numbers?
5003 somehow kept the big italic numbers it had when new through the Downer repaint.
