    No mention of the almost identical LSWR version whuich is begging for a few more livery options to be produced. Whilst not no.25, the lined black with lion over wheel has been done before. The Holden is now up to 38 liveries, all but one available to the public since introduction in 78 (NOT including different catalouge numbers, running numbers and paint finishes) but have not worked out a pug list from 80 yet ! Did have all the Holdens at one time, just for fun but now back down to a handful along with several pugs but i do have a pug hit list of several more. i do like the red ones !
  9. September was last quoted.
  10. Anyone heard about any delivery updates ?
  11. 43189 + GW93 48131 48132 49112 + 43040 Spare set at PZ.
