In what language?!  (Yes, I see the smaller script "Merry Christmas" in white paint on the right side of the image - but is that a translation of what?  For all I can tell, the much larger weird letters could say "F___ Santa" or "Save Green Stamps".   :?)

One Rail Australia locos GWU003/GWB103 make relatively light work of their load as they climb toward the highway overpass at Wirrappa, South Australia on Sunday 3 October 2021. The train is 1901 empty containers from Dry Creek yard to Rankin Dam for loading with iron ore.

The One Rail business which was separated from G & W at the beginning of 2020 has already been put on the market again and sold to Queensland based operator Aurizon.

 :?  Lenny, reference the speaker above "BUSINESS AFFAIRES", is this on the side of a commuter train locomotive to message waiting passengers?

It is on an LRC car, can't say that I have ever heard it being used as usually it is the station PA that is used.
