  1. 4777 looks great! I can't wait to see 4477 and the rest of the set in the new livery. I had long hoped that SR might paint one set in red and cream, and what a good idea that it should be the restaurant train. It really makes an impression that it is something special, which it is. Looking forward to seeing these in action, and taking a trip of course! Thanks for your hard work in making it happen!
