    Will there be any additional 66 releases to make up a batch?

    A de-branded EWS similar to 66002 but as a solo release would be good.

      Yes definitely there will. We already have some great candidates but suggestions are always welcome. For the EWS de-branded Class 66 which number would you suggest?

      66039 would be a good pick - it was one of the early ones to be de-EWS'd in 2014 so it spans a wide time period

      In terms of detail, I think it's identical to 66002. Looking at some old photos, I don't think they all got the front end stickers to begin with but 039 did.

      Joel Dapol here's some of my suggestions:-

      66301 - Fastline livery
      66413 - Freightliner (G&W Orange) livery
      66587 - Freightliner ONE (G&W Pink) livery
      66412 - DRS Compass livery
      66780 - GBRf Cemex
      66743 & 66746 - GBRf Belmond Royal Pullman livery (twin pack)
      66718 & 66721 - GBRf London Underground livery (twin pack)
      66773 - GBRf Brighton Pride 2019 livery

        Some good suggestions there. I can't see a market for a Fastline re-run though. The ones that appear on ebay never fetch a lot of money.

        I would love to know, permissions aside, whether it would be technically achievable to create the intricate London Underground liveries on 66718 and 66721 in n gauge. Joel Dapol ??

          It certainly would be a challenge but one that I think we culd do. The main problem here is permission. I have tried on a couple of occasions and have not been successful.

          Never knew a Fastline one was done. Thought Graham Farish did it (and I just don't like the GF Class 66). And as Joel said, the livery though intricate, will not be much of a problem. There's been more complex liveries on European models in smaller scales replicated nicely. For complex liveries they use laser printing or something like that.

        Delighted the NHS Tom is going ahead and hope it sells well. Some excellent ideas for new 66 liveries. It is sometime since there was a Club Special

          66773 'Pride Of GB Railfreight' would definitely get my money!
