8th July 2018
Former DRS Class 66/4 No.66413 (now operated by Freightliner) looks very tired in its old livery and is displaying signs of window rust weeping. No doubt with this locomotive having survived this long in a former operators colours will mean it will soon enter works for attention and repaint into Powerhaul livery. The locomotive is pictured at Creech St Michael on Sunday 8th July 2018 hauling 6Y97 08:15 Lipson Junction - Westbury long welded rail train.
