looks like you were at Newport the same time as me;

I was the the person who couldn't stop coughing and sneezing and seemed to be getting in the way all the time (having a bad day). Was surprised to see the DRS 66 pass through - I was looking for a better vantage point at the time so didn't get a shot. The DRS 66 was stabled at Bristol later in the day togehter with a couple of other Freightliner 66's so I guess it is on hire to them.

That FL 66 is the first thing I've EVER seen using that little siding at Cardiff!

As for 66407, certainly rare to see a DRS locomotive down in South Wales!
