Railmotor 402 repainted.

Goodwin Alco has recently helped complete the repainting of railmotor HPC 402 for its friends The Rail Motor Society at Paterson, NSW.

A team comprising of Goodwin Alco Director and TRMS member Peter MacFarlane and several other TRMS members, cleaned, sanded, masked, painted, lined and decaled 402 in under 4 weeks and in time for its around the state tour for ARHS NSW.

It is believed that 402 was last painted in the late 1980's at the railway carriage works Eveleigh whilst being prepared for radio network test duties.

The application of the new livery was sponsored by Goodwin Alco who supplied paint and materials at no cost and also produced and applied reproduction shaded lettering decals to the traditional design to denote carriage classification, seating configuration and numbering.
Special thanks is due to oldmate Tony Matthews for his excellent skills in producing the lettering files.

All agree that 402 now looks better than it has for many years and hopefully it will continue to provide excellent heritage service in the future.
