The 20th programme in the Traction series is remarkable for any number of reasons, not least this one - 400 Class 66s in traffic, only a handful in the programme!

Instead, veteran loco classes dominate and, like its predecessors, Traction 2005 is packed with the traditional assortment of wacky workings, preservation progress and 'Shed-free' traction developments.
