I believe they were introduced in 1972 or around the early 1970s as the CL class 3000 hp units and were painted silver and maroon for commonwealth railways later becoming Australian national railways then in about 1982 AN green and yellow they would have been close to an sd40 dash 2 tomstp Wrote:

Nice series from a distant land. I have a brother that lived in Australia from 1971 to 1985. Unfortunately he isn't a railfan and photographed many things but none trains.
