Home 2017-05-01 - [GB] DRS 68026 and 027 soon in service

At its Carlisle Kingmoor Depot, Direct Rail Services is preparing its brand new 68026 and 68027 for their entry into revenue service. Just like the locos of the second batch, the two have been delivered from Spain in a base blue livery. However, unlike the second batch, they haven't been stickered completely into DRS Compass livery. Instead, smaller logos have been applied on the base blue body similar, which reminds of the basic DRS Class 66 livery, possibly as a temporary measure in anticipation of a future livery change.
