GB Railfreight 66780 has been out-shopped by Arlington at Eastleigh Works in full white, blue and red Cemex livery. 66780 is the former DB Cargo UK 66008 and is one of ten Class 66 locomotives GB Railfreight bought from DB Cargo in late-2017. A picture of 66780 in its new guise can be found here: link.
GB Railfreight 66758 was named 'The Pavior' in Radlett at the local Tarmac site on 14 September 2018.
DRS 68028 has been brought into Transpennine Express (TPE) livery in the past week. The stickers were applied at Crewe Gresty Bridge, where the loco was also given the name "Lord President".
CZ LOKO has out-shopped another EffiShunter 1600 locomotive. The loco in question is 774 717-3, destined for Hungary's MVÁ.
Another two 15D locomotives have been delivered by Newag. Customer for the newly modernized 15D-037 and 15D-038 is Budokrusz S.A. Both locomotives will be operated by Budokrusz subsidiary Railpolonia.
But there is more 15D news. 15D-040 has been seen as well. The loco wears the same livery as P.U.K. Kolprem's 16D-008 and 009. In fact, it is 100% the same livery, because it concerns loco 16D-008 that has been re-gauged to 1435 mm and subsequently renumbered. Still owned by P.U.K. Kolprem, 15D-040 is currently on hire to Bartex.
Stadler has delivered the first three out of ten EURO DUAL locomotives ordered by HVLE to Germany. One locomotive was left behind in Minden, the other two arrived at Mönchengladbach for forwarding to the Siemens test centre at Wegberg-Wildenrath later. One of the locos will be showcased at the InnoTrans 2018 trade fair in Berlin in September.
