NSWGR 421 CLASS LOCOMOTIVE – EXTRA MODEL PHOTOS




NSWGR 421 CLASS LOCOMOTIVE – PROTOTYPE OVERVIEW

In December of 1965 the NSWGR took delivery of 42101, the first unit of an order for ten locomotives to be built by Clyde Engineering at their Granville plant in suburban Sydney.  Following delivery these 1800hp (1340kw) locomotives were put to work in the south of the state where, apart from a brief sojourn in the west in late 1969 to mid 1970, they remained for all their working life hauling all manner of passenger and goods trains.  For a short lived 12 month period during 1982/83 a number of the class worked into Melbourne under through working arrangements.

Over the years the class received very few external modifications, the application of grab irons on each side of the nose in the late 1960s and fitting of a new exhaust stack configuration in the late 1970s being the only changes applied to the class under public ownership.

When 42101 was repainted in mid 1976 it received the first of a number of livery changes to be applied to the class over their career, when the red cheat lines between the Indian red and yellow lining was deleted from the scheme.  Units 42102 and 42106 also received this modified livery when repainted in late 1977.

Further changes to the livery over the next couple of years saw most of the yellow along the sides removed from the paint scheme as well as a number of variations to the wings, lining, emblem and number placement.  Often referred to as the “Austerity” livery, units 42103, 42105, 42107, 42108, 42109 and 42110 were all repainted during this period however no two received identical paint schemes. 

In November 1979 the last 421 to retain its original livery, 42104, was repainted in the new “reverse” livery, this unit being part of the first batch of locomotives in the fleet to receive this paint scheme.

In late 1982 the candy livery was introduced across the fleet and in September 1983 unit 42101 was the first of the class to receive the new livery.  Units 42102, 42103, 42105, 42106, 42107 and 42108 would follow over the years however, and similar to the Austerity livery, no two loco repaints were the same with different application of the horizontal striping, roof colours, L7 logos and number placements applied to each unit.

After some 20 years of Railway service, the first unit to be withdrawn was reverse liveried 42104 in early December 1986, with the remainder of the class succumbing by early January 1987.  The class then spent the next few years in storage prior to being condemned in 1990, although 42107 did enjoy a brief return to service in 1989.

During 1990 locomotives 42103, 42105, 42107 and 42109 were sold to the Tweed Byron Scenic Railway, as part of their plan to set up a tourist railway operating on the Murwillumbah branch  In January 1992 this entity became the Northern River Railroad (NRR).  Unit 42103 was the first to be restored and it was painted in a green and cream livery in May 1993 to match passenger cars already acquired for the planned tourist service.   When the restoration of 42107 and 42109 was completed in March 1997 the units emerged in a new livery of blue, yellow, orange and white.   Unit 42105 also received this new livery when it returned to service in June 1998. 

Initially NRR was involved with hook and pull freight working between Grafton and Murwillumbah before commencement of the Ritz Rail tourist train in April 1999.  Over time various freight and infrastructure contracts often saw the NRR locomotives working away from their Casino base.  In March 2002 Queensland Rail bought the freight assets and operations of NRR, renaming it Interail.  At this time Interail signage replaced the former NRR emblems on the locomotive fleet.  Interail continued to haul the Ritz Rail tourist train under a hook and pull arrangement until the demise of the service in December 2002.  Freight operations expanded under the new name with the 421’s being part of their growing coal and intermodal business.

Following the formation of QRNational in 2004/05 all new “Interail” business was done under the new name.  In September 2008 green and cream liveried 42103 was painted into the yellow and black QRNational paint scheme.   

During 2009 unit 42109 was placed into storage, where it still remains.  In January 2013 units 42103 and 42105 were stored, which then left only 42107 as operational.  In December 2013 42103 was returned to service as part of the Glencore grain contract fleet.
