GB RAILFREIGHT marked Brighton Pride when Class 66 No. 66773 was named Pride of GB Railfreight by The Times columnist Matthew Parris at the South Coast resort on August 2.
Sporting rainbow colours along its bodyside, GB says the loco recognises LGBT+ employees across the wider rail industry, and celebrates its on-going commitment to diversity and equality.
With Mr Parris (centre), are his partner Julian Glover (right), and GBRf engineering director Bob Tiller (left).
