No. 66734 ‘Platinum Jubilee’ was in service in Europe as No. PB04 and imported from Germany for GB Railfreight use in early 2022. It’s GBRf’s 100th Class 66. This locomotive replaced the previous 66734 which hit a landslide and derailed down an embankment at Loch Trieg in June 2012.
The original 66734 was cut up on site as there were issues with recovering it from the isolated location. On 1st June 2022, ‘Platinum Jubilee’ was outshopped from Arlington Fleet Services in a royal purple and grey livery. The official Jubilee logos were included in the livery and a large Union Jack flag was painted on the bodysides. Vinyl ‘Platinum Jubilee’ nameplates were incorporated and then replaced with cast nameplates.
