The factory reported that, although progress had been made with the balance of our Hunslets, it was still waiting for a quantity of replacement PCBs to be delivered to enable it to fully complete the order. The Society therefore took the decision to ask that the portion of tranche 3 which was available, should be shipped without further delay, so that we could proceed with fulfilment of pre-orders and then make more liveries available for general sale. Liveries included in this shipment were Esso red, BP white, BP green and CEGB orange, but we will have to wait for the Undecorated models, as well as for practically all of our order for Port Authority blue/yellow liveried locos.
Update 22 September ’22: The four liveries listed above, having arrived late in June, have been on general sale for several weeks. However we still await news on the Port Authority and Undecorated liveries.
