42106 42107 42104 Goulburn turntable 27-4-86

All three liveries, as applied to the NSW 421 class streamlined EMD bulldogs.

Side by side on the open side of the old Goulburn Roundhouse turntable.

The 421 class were unique for an EMD, not only in Australia, but anywhere in the world, in that the A end was streamlined, but the rear B cab was a flat profile. Only ten were ever built, being for the NSWGR. They were utilised in passenger and express freight operations.

42106 on the left, wears the original livery minus a thin red lining strip between the tuscan and yellow, long worn off.

42104 was the sole unit to wear the revised "reverse" or safety livery with the yellow nose.

42107 is resplendent in the final "candy" corporate livery, prior to their retirement from government service.
