The final seven Class 66s to be delivered to the UK were taken to Doncaster Roberts Road on February 15.
The seven locomotives, 66773-66779, are the last Class 66s to be built for the UK. Changes in legislation regarding emissions means that no more can be built for this country.
Having been unloaded on February 13, GB Railfreight 66708 Jayne hauled its classmates from Wales to South Yorkshire for commissioning. One locomotive, 66779, will be kept 'under wraps' until it is unveiled at the National Railway Museum on May 10. It is the 480th and final Class 66 to be built for the UK.
