Sorry, I was a bit worse for wear last night, but still, it would still be an interesting project to undertake!
By the way,the EU06 was the most successful of all the the batches of British built the Roarers:
20 were built between 1962 and 1965, the first few by EE at Newton Le Willows, the majority on licence in Poland, but PKP liked them so much that they started building their own version, the EU07
in 1965, and proceeded to build no less than 244 between 1965 and 1974, 242 between 1983 and 1992, and3 from 1990 to 1994, a total of 489!
Not content with that, there is also the EP07
, (1995 and 2003, with more EU07s currently being converted), and the EP08
, built from 1973 - 76.
From an original batch of 20, there are now 500+ decendants whizzing about, with quite a few approaching their 50th birthday.
And of the original EU06s??
Well, at least 14 were still in service up until quite recently! (I don't know what the current situation is with them though).
