Description
Second Evening Star locomotive gifted to the National Collection - but not for 50 years!
The National Railway Museum (NRM) was the location for creating a piece of railway history on May 10 when the final Class 66 locomotive No. 66779 was named Evening Star respecting the history of the final British Railways built steam locomotive to be built. This was built at Swindon Works and was a heavy freight engine, Class 9F 2-10-0 No. 92220 named Evening Star.

The new diesel will also be used, as with the other 699 of its class, on heavy freight services, and was manufactured by Electromotive (EDM) and carries serial number 20148150-007 dated as being manufactured in December 2015 in Illinois USA.

And the final steam locomotive livery was replicated on the diesel complete with a steam era ‘shedplate’ 82F, the code for Bath (Green Park) shed where it was based for some of its short operational life.

Please show your appreciation below and rate model.
