    Couldn't agree more with 66789. Maybe we can also get one of the other newbies maybe 66782 the charity one or 66723 etc.

      The latest GBRF livery is this "rubbish" livery:

        Hello Steve, we have most defined now, just waiting for permission for the last one and then we will publish the lists.

        So that's Biffa then :P LOL!

      What is "Biffa"??? I won't say it looks rubbish, however it's got too much orange. Maybe a GBRf blue roof or even black would've looked better. Otherwise looks like an orange with 12 wheels.

        Biffa is a waste disposal company - hence the comment about it being a "rubbish" livery!

          Smart! I didn't comment earlier because if Biffa had turned out to be a good cause I wouldn't like making any comments about the livery.

        I’m with Joel on this one. Great combination of colours. But I liked SNCF’s TGVs when they were bright orange.

        Afternoon all!

        Is there any news on “the list” of liveries and when they may be released? Keen on GBRf 66789 myself.
        Also, with the recent freightliner branding announcement, is this one that will be added to the list this time round too?

        many thanks.

          Please have a look at post #3.6 and you'll have your answer to your first question from Dapol.

          Regarding the Freightliner re-brand, yes the company has undergone a re-branding, however no locomotives from Freightliner UK have been repainted yet. Quite unlikely to get something so soon.

          Thanks @Jeremiah, I did miss that post. Looks like my question around GBRf has been answered and now have one on order! 👍
          I did see a 66 in the G&W colours, but on closer inspection, its actually a Dutch subsidiary company. It’s very bright! 😁

          You're quite right, the only other Class 66s in the G&W livery aren't from any British company.

          It’s amazing how fast answers come to questions 😂!
          I’ve happily put in a pre-order for one of each 👍

          Looks so much better out in the open! I'm starting to love this livery. Hope Dapol produce this next year

            No, still waiting. I think GF have asked for exclusive on this so I am not hopeful :-(.

            Doesn't matter Joel. Hope you'll still go ahead with the rest. Personally I don't think the competitors model captures the look and character of the Class 66 (which is funny because their OO gauge version seems to do just that).

            Seems a shame that Farish have gone for an exclusive as they have just released a batch of 66's so I feel the next batch due from them will be quite a while off. I suppose that is how business works and Probably a bit of money going in Freightliner's direction.

          Just in case no one knew decorates samples of 66789 in BR blue livery and 66783 in biffa livery are now on the gaugemaster website.
