Eventhough the unloading of 68016 and 68017 was delayed for a few hours, it happened as planned on October 26. Because on-board lifting equipment and dockside cranes were not available, a heavy mobile crane was used to lift the locomotives out of the ship's hold.
The locomotives have been delivered in their blue base livery. DRS stickers and service numbers will be added by the operator at a later moment. Transfer of the locomotives towards the DRS depot at Carlisle Kingmoor was provided with class mate 68004.
