War paint - Geelong style
From: Mal Rowe

At the very end of tramway operatuions in Geelong, the SEC adopted a
'zebra stripe' scheme on the ends of some of the fleet in an attampt to
reduce the number of accidents with motor vehicles. It was even more
striking than the scheme adopted at Ballarat and Bendigo.


Today's anonymously sourced pic shows bogie car 35 heading north from

I'm also attaching another pic from Dr John Radcliffe showing another
bogie car in 'war paint'.


Someone can probably help with the location.
