Diesel-electric heavy freight locomotives
Class 66 built 1998-2000 by General Motors/EMD, London, Ontario, Canada (model JT42CWR low emission locos model JT42CWRM). Class 66 diesel powered locomotives have electric transmission, maximum tractive effort of Class 66 locos is 409 kN/92000 lbf, max. speed of Class 66 locomotives is 60/75 mph, weight of Class 66 locos is 127 tonnes. Class 66 locomotives were all originally powered by GM two engines of 2385 kW (3200 hp). Class 66/3, Class 66/4, and some Class 66/5, Class 66/7 and Class 66/9 locomotives have an EMD 2420 kW (3245 hp) engine.
Class 66 are the most common heavy haul freight locomotives you will see on standard gauge British Railways systems maintained by Network Rail or private freight train operators like DRS, D B Schenker (Ex EWS), Colas Rail, GBRf etc. Class 66 diesel electric locos are the most numerous freight locomotives operating on UK railways, running many varied heavy haul, intermodal freight trains in England, Wales and Scotland.
