Home GM / EMD / Progress Rail JT42CWR(M/-T1) / Class 66 Eversholt Rail [GB] GBRf adds to fleet with Scandinavian Class 66s

A total of 8 Class 66 locomotives, owned by Beacon Rail Leasing, has been roaming Scandinavian rails during the past years. Some of them will now be transferred to the United Kingdom, where GB Railfreight will take them on. The first of three locos to arrive in the UK through the Port of Immingham is T66 403, formerly operated by Hector Rail. GB Railfreight will operate the loco as 66790. Currently, the loco is at the EMD facility at Longport, Stoke-on-Trent for rebuilding. Locos T66 404 and 405 will arrive later and will be operated as 66791 and 66792 respectively.
