45 XX Development Update 1

Work on the 45XX locomotive has been progressing nicely since its announcement. The CADS for all three variants that Lionheart are producing have been now been approved. Artwork for each of the models is currently underway. The project will be going into the tooling shop imminently.

Below you can see the overall CAD for what we have termed the B variant of the locomotive – this represents what you can expect locomotive 4555 to look like.


Below is a CAD of what have termed the C variant of the locomotive – this represents what you can expect locomotives 445, 4547 and 45X3 (unnumbered) to look like


Finally, below is a CAD of that we have termed the F variant of the locomotive – this represents what you can expect 45X1 (no number), 4557, 45X2 (no number), 4571 and 4564 to look like.


The artwork for the various liveries will be posted as an update to the 45XX Development blog just as soon as we are happy with it.
