WATCH: Belgium Class 66 Locomotive heads through Chesterfield

11th December 2018 saw a Belgium Crossrail Benelux Class 66 Locomotive being dragged by Class 37 Locomotive 37601 Perseus from Heden Road Sidings to Longport FD seen at Chesterfield Station.

This Class 66 is PB13 (66998 as it is known whilst it is in the UK) which hauls freight trains in Belgium for Crossrail Benelux and has been brought over to England for work to be done on it at Longport in Stoke On Trent.

The 66 will, probably, stay in the UK for a few months just like sister loco 66999 which came over in August this year and left in November 

This is one of the rarest moves to come through Chesterfield Station ever!

The move passed through Chesterfield on time at 15:03

NOTE The move was heading from Heden Road Sidings (in Hull) to Longport FD (in Stoke On Trent) and not from Hedon Bridge Sidings as stated in the video.
