66163 Washwood Heath 22 November 2008

Costco could also be an appropriate name for the class of loco pictured here. 66163 passes the discount store at Washwood Heath on 22 November 2008 with a short rake of engineers vehicles in a welcome patch of sunshine. The Class 66's no frills and economy design has nevertheless served the needs of the remaining rail freight traffic over the last decade despite various problems including poor build quality.
