I am most grateful to Richard Phelps of Stoke Gifford, Bristol who forwarded the following document to me for inclusion on this web site.

What is most interesting is the fact that the cover declares "95 of these locomotives are in course of delivery"
The final increase of the order quantity to 101 was made in December 1961 obviously after this document was printed
I suspect this document was part of a plan to obtain further orders for Hymek type locomotives.  Any Ideas?
