Last Updated : December 11th 2022 (NRU307M updated)

The VRs shown on this page were in Spain 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.
