Locomotive Deliveries

We love multiple locos running together here at Trainbits. New locomotive deliveries often give rise to long loco formations. Here are a few such movements on Youtube from around the world.

All other Class 70 deliveries were more successful and two locomotives were seen undergoing delivery in the US:

Meanwhile some GBRf BR Class 66s being delivered:

More sadly this 39 loco monster from the US has 35 of the locos heading for scrap:
