About 66726

66726 was part of a batch of five locomotives delivered to GB Railfreight (GBRf) in early 2007. The engine still works for GBRf today, appearing in a few different liveries over the 11 years GBRf has owned the engine.

Since I was a child, I have been a big fan of steam locomotives. This enthusiasm has been become greater in recent years, leading to me becoming involved in a society restoring a standard gauge locomotive. Joining the RailAdvent team in 2017, I help Michael produce articles.
