  Class 66 Pictures by Nick Slocombe
GBRF class66 number 722 at Old Lindsdale, U.K.

The British class 66 has become more or less an icon of diesel traction in many European countries. Hundreds of these tight loading gauge but powerful diesels are in daily use hauling freights for their customers. As an American design the JT42CWR as it is called by type is built to withstand hard use and this EMD manufactured model has that way gained wide acceptance among numerous operators. Although no more in production expect to see these locos for the next hundred years or so, so they are still in production for a loong while.

Nick Slocombe has taken hundreds of pictures of the Class 66, some of which are to be seen here at
