GB Railfreight 66783 (ex-DB Cargo UK 66058) has been out-shopped in a special livery. The loco has been painted red to mark the partnership between GB Railfreight and waste management company Biffa.


On March 28th, the loco was named “The Flying Dustman” at York Railway Station. The name was chosen following a naming competition amongst Biffa staff, who were keen to pay light-hearted homage to the historic passenger train service, “The Flying Scotsman”.
