Another 40 Class Update
With assembly of the 40 class about to commence the factory will soon need a definitive break up of the production run.
This being so, consideration has been given to liveries and appropriate engine numbers with the following being decided on:
Original Green Type 1 4003, 4004
Type 2 4009, 4010, 4012, 4019
Royal Blue Type 2 4001, 4002
Tuscan Red Type 3 4006, 4011, 4017, 4018
With regard to the Type 1 variation one of the major differences is the mesh grill on the top of the engine housing. This is being replicated by pad printing on the engine body as shown in the below photograph. This is also the green that will be used on both the Type 1 and Type 2 green engines.
An updated order form will be available on the Eureka web site shortly. Those patient individuals with 40 class on order should advise the Eureka office of their preferred liveries and engine numbers.
