The new Biffa livery on GBRf Class 66 66783 The Flying Dustman (formerly EWS Class 66/0 No. 66058 Derek Clark) lightens the gloom on a dull, wet afternoon as it powers through Hinckley at the head of the 12:05 Theale Puma - Immingham Puma empty oil tanks on 4th April 2018. The locomotive was named to mark the partnership between GBRf & Biffa and is a tongue in cheek reference to the Flying Scotsman. As Class 67s are nicknamed 'skips' will the Class 66 sheds now become known as wheelie bins? The train is now routed westwards on the GWML from Reading to run via Didcot, Oxford, Bordesley and Nuneaton to gain the MML at Leicester to go onwards via Nottingham, Newark and Lincoln to reach Immingham.
