The NSW Rail Transportation Museum's 4306 was re-liveried in silver and was
used for filming purposes (Japanese TV car commercial) during 4 days in August 2006. The locomotive could easily be
restored to its pristine NSWGR Indian Red livery as the paint was water-based acrylic paint.
In September 2006 V/Line S302 was sold to rail contractor El Zorro of
Melbourne who hauls works trains and grain trains. The bulldog nose retained the V/Line livery, although the logos have been painted
CFCLA B61 left Bendigo workshop on broad gauge bogies in SSR yellow/black
livery in January 2006, but it soon got standard gauge bogies for NSW workings. The locomotive was refurbished,
because of material fatigue in the frames (of which all the B and S class suffered from). CFCLA B76 and S300 have
also been outshopped mid 2006 on standard gauge bogies, although in CFCLA's own blue and silver livery. S300 is
leased to SSR. CFCLA B80 and CFCLA S311 will follow soon. S311 will also be leased to SSR.
Two developments in the Australian railway sector could see bulldog locomotive fleets to be split or change ownership.
