General Motors' JT42-CTWR, better known as Class 66, has had a dramatic impact on the rail freight industry, not only in Britain but also in Mainland Europe.

We feature all four current UK operators as well as venturing across the Channel to take a look at operations over there.

Full of variety and colour, the locos' day to day operations are shown alongside some of the more unusual duties the class works.

From Par to Georgemas Junction and numerous locations in between, Route 66 is the story of Class 66.

Highlights include:

  • 66001 arriving at Immingham plus its very first run
  • First run of a 66 on the Northolt 'bins'
  • 66064 moving EMU stock
  • The first Freightliner 66 over the Chilterns
  • The first convoy of GBRf 66s
  • EWS and Freightliner locos on Channel Tunnel Rail Link duties
  • Shanks-liveried 66522's first run
  • 66102 in the Far North on a Safeway train
  • DRS's 66407 on Calvert 'binliner'
  • 66411's first run in Stobart livery
  • 66705 rescuing a Freightliner
  • 66127 hauling ex-EPS 37s on Enterprise
  • 66003 at Greenholme hauling a track machine on fire
  • 66704 rescuing a Virgin passenger train
  • 66s at various diesel galas
  • Railtour action including 'Eddie' on the DRS tour
  • EWS locos in France
  • Plus a look at some of the European operators in Holland and Germany.

All this and plenty more, coupled with informative graphic sequences to complement the action.

The DVD has motion menus, scene selection, and 'commentary off' option. Narrated by David Maxey.
