It is still ongoing. All Class 378/1s have been repainted, and the Class 378/2s are nearly done too I believe.

The repainted units carry their number on the cab roof. Not sure why, it would need a drone or helicopter to see them.

They also carry their numbers on the side of the cab, at the bottom.

And there's still quite a few 378/1's in the old livery.
Oh! I read wrong! The Little Book of Numbers still holds true! 378135/136/147/150/206/232 are in the new livery. It seems to be going slowly though!

378 150 has been in the new livery for nearly 2 years at least (spotted it in July 2019). Though most I see are still in original livery, does seem to be taking a while

Would it be safe to say that there hasn't been much slack in the 378 fleet? Until the Class 710s are fully introduced.

that’s not correct, I still only see a handful each day, my office sits opposite the track on the ELL.

Thanks for all the reply’s. Do we know when the last repaint took place?
