GB Railfreight Class 66 No. 66788 was named Locomotion on September 21 as part of the celebrations to mark a decade and a half since the National Railway Museum opened its outstation in Shildon, County Durham.
Bob Tiller, GBRf engineering director, said: “The work Locomotion does to showcase the history of the railways is an inspiration, and I hope visitors are encouraged to find out more about the important role rail freight plays across the country.”
