The GM that started it all off for Freightliner 66501 'Japan 2001' brings its train...the Ipswich to Tilbury liner...through Stratford on the 7th November 2003. You get a second chance to see this train as it goes into the yard at Temple Mills where the loco swaps ends and then re-appears in about 1 hour.

The engine is waiting in the "despatch" line to the mainline, where it awaits space in the Paint Shop of General Motors. It will eventually leave the plant with other class members along this line.
It is currently wedged between two new SD 70 Macs also in production at GM Canada for Burlington Northern Santa Fe.

Freightliner-66523-BristolTM-01.jpg (155447 bytes)

Freightliner Class 66 diesel locomotive 66523 at the very northern end of Bristol Temple Meads station. The locomotive arrived from the north, proceded no further along the platform than in this picture and then returned back north again, pausing at the station long enough only for the driver to change ends and await a green signal. What the purpose of this move was is a mystery to me!

A tall building near to Stratford station casts an unhelpful shaddow during the morning at this time of year, so as a result this was the only picture of a freight in the snow we managed to get during our time there. Its 66501 and the date January 29th 2004.
