This page will have details of all the locos to be renamed in support of Project Railway Honour, starting with a Freightliner locomotive.
Patriot – 66418
Freightliner and Dapol have teamed up to honour Britain’s war dead for the 100th anniversary of the armistice and to raise money to help ex-servicemen and women.
On 11th November 2016 Freightliner named class 66418 “Patriot” in a naming ceremony following a Remembrance Day service at Freightliner’s new Crewe depot. 66418 now carries the new Genessee and Wyoming branded version of Freightliner’s PowerHaul livery. Dapol will now produce a limited edition N gauge model of this locomotive and all proceeds from sales will go to the ABF- The Soldier’s Charity. Only 250 models will be produced and orders are first come, first served – Dapol have a few minor corrections to the pre-production sample and will advise a delivery schedule shortly.
The limited edition N gauge model is now available for order from Revolution Trains (who have provided a free online ordering service to the project).
Further locomotives will be named in due course.
