66041, 66034, 66037 & 66039 Coedkernew 19 December 1998

The beginning of the end! The General Motors invasion, which signalled the end of the interesting variety of traction on the national network began in 1998, and caused me to partially lose interest in the freight scene for a number of years. Brand new 66041, 66034, 66037 & 66039 pass Coedkernew on 19 December 1998, en-route from Newport to Margam, for storage over the Christmas period. They had been unloaded from the M.V.Fairload two days earlier, and this is therefore their first movement in the UK, so I suppose was worth recording, despite the grim weather.
