What's going on with it. Apparently it's stored at Southampton Maritime, but I have a pic of it taken at Stratford last week.

Unfortunatley I don't think the 57's have got much left in them. A few weeks ago there were two failures in one day, and four within five days all in the Southampton/Basingstoke area. If Freightliner put in an order for more 66's, they will almost certainly go. :(

Ah, can't have come up Cardiff way, wasn't in the FLT at Cardiff this afternoon, that's for sure.

I'll be looking out for 57003 tomorrow morning, I'll be passing the FLT there again at the same time. 009 was on a service to Soton (if that's where they go) this morning, I might get lucky for 003!

Pardon? Where's that?

It was 66503 this morning on the EB FL containers. Hoping for a 57 tomorrow, when I get the 0902 from Hereford to Cardiff for the 3rd time in a row...Unless I'm running a bit late, then it'll be a bail at Newport to ensure I don't miss the Gloucester stopper!
