4458, 4461 & 4488 all received their 1 off schemes when re-activate by HVRT and leased to LVR.
4458 was painted at Cowra, while 4461 & 4488 were painted at North Rothbury.
HVRT also operated 4463 & 4497. 4463 retained the former SRA candy & 4497 the Reverse livery, HVRT later purchased 4472 & 4498 from Austrac, and placed both in service in their ex SRA liveries of 4472 Candy & 4498 Red terror.
4458 was the 1st of the, then HVRT owned 44's to enter service in October 2001. 4458 was previously in a heavily faded freight rail blue livery and was repainted just using surplus paint available, the nose area was virtually the same pattern as the previous scheme with white replacing the yellow and green the blue, the white stripe along the side was because there wasn't enough green to do the whole unit.
4461 entered traffic in May 2002, its scheme was a trial for a HVRT based scheme (that was not adopted)
4463 entered traffic December 2001
4488 entered service December 2001, the scheme on this unit was US inspired.
4497 entered service Jan2002
Only 4497 was repainted into IRA (Silver) livery while still in HVRT ownership
Although 4488 along with the sole member still in HVRT ownership 4472 were repainted in 2007 into a Silver and Yellow livery at HVRT's North Rothbury site. 4472 still retains this scheme till today.
