C38 Project Update

The factory has advised that it wishes to start the injection process for the 38 class re-run project so that it can carry out the decoration process (painting). This is the most time consuming part of the assembly process and can be carried out whilst the engineering sample is being put together in August.
In order for decoration to be undertaken the artwork must be completed at this end. This is a major task in itself and obviously before the artwork can be completed a final decision must be made on the engine numbers and liveries that are to be produced. This decision has now been made and preparation of the artwork is underway.
The numbers and liveries that will be available are as follows:



3801 Verdant Green                          (1980s)

            3801            Black (c. 1960)


             3801              Grey   (1944)

                                                                     3802       Special Green                             (c.1946- c.1953)

                        3803   Special Green    (c.1946-c.1953)


3804  and 3805         Black  late 1950s



 3806      Special green/black smokebox  

3807      Royal Train Pilot Black (1954)

  3809      Black (1960s)                 

3815   Special Green/black         
     smokebox early 1950s

   3818              Special Green/green smokebox (1947-c.1953)


3820     Black (1960s) (Limited number)

3827   Special Green/green  smokebox 
            (1949-c.1953) (Limited number)

 For interest purposes here is the artwork for 3807 in Royal Train livery which was prepared for the first run by Sanda Kan but which was not proceeded with in the first run.
