* Class names often change over the lifespan of a locomotive, so this is not necessarily the class name used by the operator in the period modelled.

Special commissions are usually only available new from the commissioning organisation, and may well have sold out on pre-order before they even end up listed here! But you may be able to find used items on marketplace or auction websites.
