VRs in Italy

Last Updated : August 12th 2016 (FAO427V updated)

The VRs shown on this page were in Italy on the above date. The liveries depicted are the last known to be carried by the individual vehicles. If you know that the livery or location has now changed I would appreciate receiving an email or, better still, a photo which I will add to this page and credit to you. Remember - the site is only as good as the information I receive.

The following VR is with IdeaE20 Marketing in Milan and has been used on European tours promoting McVities biscuits:
