On 28th March 2018, GB Railfreight 66783 (ex-DB Cargo UK 66058) was named "The Flying Dustman" at York station. This locomotive was painted in Biffa corporate colours to mark the partnership between GB Railfreight and Biffa, the well known waste management company.

The name was chosen following a competition amongst the staff at Biffa who thought it an appropriate tribute to the somewhat better known train "The Flying Scotsman". Being a named example in an eye catching livery, this locomotive will be very popular amongst railway enthusiasts and modellers alike and we're grateful to both GB Railfreight and Dapol for bringing this product to market.

PLEASE NOTE: - The picture we have used was taken prior to the naming of the locomotive. Our model is of the named locomotive.
