Freightliner green 66/5 – bespoke


Freightliner green liveried Class 66/5 in a number of your choice – variety of detail combinations

SKU: RR-N66-FL-XXX Categories: ,


Freightliner green liveried Class 66/5 in a number of your choice – with a variety of detail combinations.

We are working in partnership with Rainbow Railways to offer variations of our standard base liveries and tooling variations.

Revolution Bespoke allows customers to pick from a list of number/livery detail variations the specific loco number that you want.  The list of available variations all represent real combinations of livery and details (we have been through a lot of research to enable this!). The base livery will be factory finished, but the final touches eg the side numbers and changes to logos or additional logos will be printed by Rainbow Railways along with any finishing touches eg etched nameplates.  The Revolution Bespoke models will finished by Rainbow Railways once the models arrive so will arrive with customers later than the standard versions to allow time for customisation. Please note that once production has started we can’t cancel or change your loco as these will be bespoke models produced to order (statutory rights still apply). We reserve the right to withdraw a variation if the specific livery element can not be printed to an acceptable standard.

Variations of Freightliner green 66/5 available are:

  • Freightliner green as delivered (all locos)
  • Freightliner green with Zero Injuries logos
  • Freightliner green with later “Freightliner, a Genesee & Wyoming company” branding (cab side and front; or cab front only; or cab sides only)
  • Freightliner green with “We are recruiting” poster (66564 only)
