Thanks Soccermad. Does anyone have the dates 66796 and 66797 were released into traffic (if they have been), please? Many thx
I have 15th September for 66797 but I could be a day or 2 out.
As for 66796, it did it's big Green unveiling and then went to Longport and hasn't come out since I don't think. It is showing as being in 'normal' status on TOPS but I don't think it has done any work yet

66796 is at Longport undergoing conversion as is 66799

66734 is still operational in Germany and is likely to be re-renumbered when it does arrive into the UK.

Loco which is proposed to be renumbered to 66734 is about to start pre transport conversion in Germany (at an EMD site)


It is planned to be moved to the UK in December
