    The Class 66 has been in the game for 6 years, yet only exists in two liveries (one of which is part of a quite old DLC). Considering the fact that over 400 of these locomotives are in use in the UK, it's quite surprising than there aren't any more liveries in the game. Even worse is the fact that all the routes and DLC with the 66 have it in EWS livery. EWS doesn't even exist anymore! The Class 66 is a great TSW locomotive and I believe that it deserves a livery pack. Here are some suggestions for liveries that could be included (with accurate subclasses, nameplates and headlight clusters):

    Colas Rail Freight

    Direct Rail Services
    [​IMG]

    Freightliner Green
    [​IMG]

    Freightliner Orange
    [​IMG]

    DB Cargo Red (reused)
    [​IMG]

    DB Cargo 66004 "Climate Hero"
    [​IMG]

    EWS livery with DB logos (sort of reused)
    [​IMG]

    Maritime Intermodals
    [​IMG]

    GBRF Original livery
    [​IMG]

    GBRF with Semicircle Ends
    [​IMG]

    GBRF 66708 "Glory to Ukraine"
    [​IMG]

    Royal Scotsman
    [​IMG]

    GBRF 66779 "Evening Star" BR Green
    [​IMG]

    GBRF 66793 BR Construction Sector Gray livery
    [​IMG]

    GBRF 66789 "British Rail" Blue livery
    [​IMG]

    GBRF Biffa 66783 "Flying Dustman"
    [​IMG]

    Adding more liveries to the 66 would make it more exciting to drive and to see them. It would also be more realistic as the EWS class 66 isn't the only one to exist and there are even more liveries than I have listed here.

    EWS turned into DB Schenker in 2011 and then to DB Cargo in 2016. Some of their trains still have EWS liveries but most have the logos removed and/or replaced with DB logos.

    Which wagons would be used? I know nearly nothing when it comes to wagons.

    How many routes have the 66? How often is a DB Cargo UK EWS-liveried 66 seen on those routes?

    1) Every modern UK route.

    2) I don't think every single modern UK route in game in real life would and probably not that often.

    I suspect Licensing will be a mountainous hurdle to this one.
    To that end, it's not "ridiculous" that we only have two liveries.

    These are suggestions and they don't have to do all of them. They could do a pack with only DB or Freightliner, even if it's only 2-3 liveries. Considering how many liveries exist for this locomotive I'm surprised that EWS/DB are the only liveries in the game
