El Zorro wagon transfer from Warrnambool, December 2008

May 18, 2010

El Zorro transfer sent T376 down to Warrnambool light engine on Wednesday December 3, 2008 to pick up some of their wagons from the yard. The train returned the next day. Back when they had the contract for running the Warrnambool freight they had a wagon with a cage at one end (ZFSX 12K) that got red carded and couldn't be moved. The second wagon (ZDXF 1) was left behind on the last run as the train was too long to fit into the loop at Camperdown.

The train length is constrained by short crossing loops and often runs during the day on the down trip due to pathing issues beyond Geelong

New V/Line Mk3 livery

February 18, 2016

2007 saw V/Line introduce a new livery for their fleet - the third since 1983. Red, grey and white form the core colours, along with a purple stripe.

FSH25 was the first of V/Line's carriage sets to be repainted in their new corporate livery. It went to Geelong on a test run on September 4th. Sprinter 7007 has also been repainted in it's own new livery. Both trains were launched on September 12th, 2007 at Southern Cross Station. VN12 was the first N set to be repainted, and N468 was the first locomotive.

Since then a number of other carriage sets, locomotives and Sprinters have received modified versions of the new livery.
