Rail cars over the back fence

Just a short one tonight as I am digging for other stuff but I did come across a few shots of diesel rail cars providing passenger services through North Wollongong.

This first one - I think - comes from the early 1980s.  It is a north-bound morning service.

Around the same time the repainted versions were appearing. This 4 car set carries the white ' reverse 7' logos, which made them go faster and not break down.

Once done with the reverse 7s, some sets got the 'reverse' paints job.  These ones went even faster.

Finally, the painters went for the fastest colours in their tins - red and orange. 

Sadly this did not further improve their speed or longevity.
