The Future's Orange

Although Freightliner's smart new orange livery had been introduced over 2 years previously, only a handful of locos had received the new colours by early 2021. 66.623 was one of the first recipients and, at the date of writing, was the only Class 66/6 so adorned. The future for Freightliner's fleet might be orange but it looks like green and yellow will be with us for years to come.

66.623 worked west from Kintbury with 7C74, the 14:55 Theale to Whatley Quarry stone empties, on 29 March 2021.
