I actually like K190's new paint but to change the subject a bit here is pretty much the only photo i took for the day of A2986

Something you would see at many of the stations back in the day
The crew for A2986 swap over

In relation to loco colours, as long as there are operational kettles, on the tracks, paint 'em any colour you choose.

I'd really appreciate some quality photos of Z 256 (and its attached vintage train) at the Newport Workshops Open Day for inclusion on the Australiansteam.com page for this loco.  Contributions welcome, pls PM me!

With all the fuss over the colours of locos; I assume many people's heads would explode over the mechanical lubricator and the butterfly doors on 986? Did the engine ever run as a coal burner with boxpoks? Or do people only know what colours stuff used to run in and that's why it causes such a huff n' puff? The great thing about paint is you can change it whenever you like, or more to the point the owner/custodian of the loco can.

I spent Monday at Newport enjoying the event, and thank all the groups involved for a splendid afternoon.

Enough about the colour, be thankful you have mainline steam, here in SA we have a branch line and no mainline steam at all!

Has anyone got any more photos of the F Class diesel & Polly? They are just good lookin locos and would love to look at modelling them some day!

Well done to Steamrail who looks like they put on a great day!

There is no fuss over loco colours. A few people, myself included, have said they either like 190's colour or they don't - a simple expression of preference. I haven't seen anyone saying that Steamrail should or should not use a particular colour. My own comment was that Steamrail can do what it likes. Why you assume that "people's heads would explode" over other features escapes me. This "heritage" bit is being introduced for no good reason - it has not been part of the debate.
