Some more info posted by Dapol on Rmweb:

These will be the inital liveries for the Romanian Built Version:

56019 Railfreight red stripe grey
56013 Triple grey coal sector

They also say that a large logo blue should be in the next batch.

I'll defintaly be getting one of the EWS ones and probably a large logo one when released.

I suspect the coal liveried 56013 will join 58042 in my very small retained UK fleet.

An interesting choice this one, as it spent a few days down in Cornwall back in the early 1990s to assess whether or not these locos were suitable to replace pairs of 37s on the silver bullets.
