45XX/4575 update 20 December 2016
These locomotives are now entering the painting stage this week and then finally assembly will be undertaken over the next two weeks. There are no less than 28 different painting patterns on this run of locomotives! We have had to order some additional number plates from Severn Mill Nameplates to replace the sets used on the five painted sample engines. The new target is to have the engines ready for inspection for the 6 January before shipping to the UK. Providing they clear UK Customs in time, we may have them at the Bristol Show on 22 January.
