I frequently see locomotives on their way from Belmont Down Yard to Toton TMD for maintenance and lots are in pairs or more on the same run. Whenever a class 66 and a class 60 are together, it always seems to be the Class 60 leading the consist. Why is this? I would have assumed that the newer locomotive would be the one to drive, but drivers seem to prefer driving the 60.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Are the 60s much nicer to drive?

You have called it, 60s are quieter, less vibration, and generally a nicer drive, 66 on full bore will have you head ringing for a while
